A good account of the Civil War from a day to day Officers view.

This is both fact neatly entwined with fiction. It is a classic recount of the Civil War in Virginia following Gettysburg told from both sides of the battle. As such it ranks among such classics as Crane's The Red Badge of Courage, Churchill's The Crisis, and the non-fiction of Bruce Catton. It is a striking contrast of the two combatant armies.

A satisfying conclusion to the farher-son trilogy, Shaara once again takes us into the minds of the most important of the Civil War generals. By deeply personalizing their stories, Shaara brings the war straight to the reader's heart. Anyone who loves a good story will enjoy this book, but historians will rejoice! I was moved to tears during the description of Lee's surrender to Chamberlain. My very highest recommendation.
