I have read every book by Jeff Shaara, and anxiously await the publication of each one. His books are meticulously researched, the characters are real historical figures. We have to call them novels only because of the supposed dialog. This is Shaara's return to the Civil War with a treatment of one of the major battles in the western theater, where the fighting and the number of casualties are just as horrific as those more famous battles in the east. Shaara gives you a unbiased perspective of generals and privates from both sides of the conflict. A great way to experience history.
