All the great battles are here, of course, from Bull Run through Shiloh, the Seven Days, Second Manassas to Antietam and Perryville in the fall of 1862, but so are the smaller and often equally important engagements on both land and sea. Perhaps never before have these conflicts been so clearly, so dramatically, and so excitingly presented. The word “narrative” is the key; not only to this extraordinary book’s incandescence, but also to its truth. The story is told entirely from the point of view of the people involved in it. Listeners not only learn what was happening in the North and South on the political, military, diplomatic and home fronts, but live through the events as if they were there. This is the way it was, in its entirety, as far as Shelby Foote could discover it during years of exhaustive research.
