Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An important reassessment of the Civil War battle that left more dead and wounded than all previous conflicts in American history combined — and stripped both the Union and the Confederacy of the illusion that victory was just around the corner.

The battle of Shiloh, fought in April 1862 in the wilderness of south-central Tennessee, marked a savage turning point in the Civil War. In this masterful book, Larry Daniel re-creates the drama and the horror of the battle and discusses in authoritative detail the political and military policies that led to Shiloh, the personalities of those who formulated and executed the battle plans, the fateful misjudgments made on both sides, and the heroism of the small-unit leaders and ordinary soldiers who manned the battlefield.

"A splendid analysis...in the tradition of Killer Angels...thoroughly researched and annotated, with splendid statistics...Daniel's battle maps are well-rendered and easy to understand at a glance....Shiloh is an excellent read". — Houston Chronicle

"A superbly researched volume that will appeal to the beginning Civil War reader as well as those already familiar with the course of fighting in the wooded terrain bordering Tennessee". — Publishers Weekly
