Review:

"Here, for a certainty, is one of the great historical narratives of our century, a unique and brilliant achievement, one that must be firmly placed in the ranks of the masters."--Van Allen Bradley, "Chicago Daily News
"
"A stunning book full of color, life, character and a new atmosphere of the Civil War, and at the same time a narrative of unflagging power. Eloquent proof that an historian should be a writer above all else."--Burke Davis

"This is historical writing at its best. . . . It can hardly be surpassed."--"Library Journal"

"Anyone who wants to relive the Civil War, as thousands of Americans apparently do, will go through this volume with pleasure. . . . Years from now, Foote's monumental narrative most likely will continue to be read and remembered as a classic of its kind."--"New York Herald Tribune Book Review "

"To read this great narrative is to love the nation--to love it through the living knowledge of its mortal division. Whitman, who ultimately knew and loved the bravery and frailty of the soldiers, observed that the real Civil War would never be written and perhaps "should" not be. For me, Shelby Foote has written it. . . . This work was done to last forever."--James M. Cox, " Southern Review"
