The Only books you ever need to read on the American Civil War,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Civil War Boxed Set [With American Homer] (Modern Library) (Hardcover)
Evocative and beautifully writen.Shelby Foote manages to bring to life a cast of players both central and on the periphery of the conflict in such a way that you feel that you might really have known them. There are heroes and fools, gentlemen and thugs. The books capture the central themes of the struggle and bring into sharp relief the horror of civil war and the tragedy of family and nation divided.
