Publisher Comments:

Selected by the Modern Library as one of the 100 best nonfiction books of all time

A stunning literary and historical achievement, the three volumes of Shelby Foote’ s The Civil War vividly bring to life the four years of torment and strife that altered American life forever. Presented in a handsome boxed set, these three beautifully bound hardcovers are an essential addition to every American history collection.

Taking the reader from the drama of Jefferson Davis’s resignation from the United States Senate and Abraham Lincoln’s arrival in the nation’s capital to Davis’s final flight and capture and Lincoln’s tragic death, Foote covers his subject with astonishing depth and scope. Every battle, every general, and every statesman has its place in this monumental narrative, told in lively prose that captures the sights, smells, and sounds of the conflict. Never before have the great battles and personalities of the Civil War been so excitingly presented, and never before has the story been told so completely.

With a novelist’s gift for narrative and a historian’s commitment to research, Shelby Foote’s epic retelling is the definitive account of the Civil War, a trilogy that has earned a place of honor on the bookshelves of all Americans.

Synopsis:

Shelby Foote begins a tremendous, sweeping narrative of the most fascinating conflict in our history---a war which lasted four long, bitter years, an experience more profound and meaningful than any other the American people have ever lived through. And 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. Three volume set.

Synopsis:

"Fredericksburg to Meridian" is full of the life of the times--the elections of 1863, the resignations of Seward and Chase, and the inescapable resolution that the war must go on. Told entirely through the lives and actions of the people in

I can best sum up by saying that when I got to the end of this three-volume multi-thousand-page series, I was sorry there wasn’t more to read. I wish Shelby Foote had narrated his own Audio books, but his elegant, matter of fact, and dryly humorous voice can be heard on every page.
