The Civil War: A Narrative: Volume 3: Red River to Appomattox by Shelby Foote
The Civil War: A Narrative: Volume 3: Red River to Appomattox

Ande, July 27, 2012

I bought a copy of this book (Vol 3) in a small charity shop on a little Island off the coast of SE Queensland, Australia (I live there too). Not knowning much about the American civil war I started read it and was unable to put it down, except to eat. Shelby Foote had me so engrossed - the amount of detail had me right in the middle of action where I then went to the rear where it was much safer. But it wasn't just battles, it told of the civilian populations, the conditionds, the soldiers, the generals, and of course the casualities. The author has a tremendious amount of information arranged, so as to enable an easy progression for the reader, on his or her journey. At the time I was unaware I had only Vol 3. so here I am shopping for the other two Volumes which I now know I will throughly enjoy.

I know this is not a true review of the book, but it was the way I needed to say it.
