Here, for a certainty, is one of the great historical narratives of our century, a unique and brilliant achievement, one that must be firmly placed in the ranks of the masters. Van Allen Bradley, Chicago Daily News. Anyone who wants to relive the Civil War, as thousands of Americans apparently do, will go through this volume with pleasure....Years from now, Foote's monumental narrative most likely will continue to be read and remembered as a classic of its kind. New York Herald Tribune Book Review. This, then, is narrative history-a kind of history that goes back to an older literary tradition.... One of the historical and literary achievements of our time.
The Washington Post Book World. Foote has an acute sense of the relative importance of events and a novelist's skill in directing the reader's attention to the men and the episodes that will influence the course of the whole war, without omitting items which are of momentary interest. His organization of facts could hardly be bettered. An unparalleled achievement, an American Iliad, a unique work uniting the scholarship of the historian and the high readability of the first-class novelist. I have never read a better, more vivid, more understandable account of the savage battling between Grant's and Lee's armies.
