Shelby foote is one of the finest hstorical writers I have read and this book, part one of a massive 3 volume 3000 page work is him at his best. His style is narrative and intimate. small patches of humour are never far from his accounts of what otherwise is a supremely sad part of world history. Altogether he was a brilliant historian and writer my only regret is that I only discovered him after his death. I would love to have known him.
A must for the serious student of the Civil war
