Summary
From bestselling author (Forrest Gump) and accomplished Civil War historian Winston Groom, comes a fascinating new account of the 1862 battle Shiloh, the first great and terrible battle of the Civil War. Pitting rising Union upstart Ulysses S. Grant against Confederate firebrand Albert Sydney Johnston, the engagement revealed to both North and South the tragic power of improved 19th-century weaponry and was the first indication on either side that the war was to become a terrible multi-year slog with devastating consequences on both sides. Like his popular Vicksburg 1863, this account of Shiloh promises to place an important battle in context and stand as the most engaging, readable account of events on the shelf for years to come

Review
This is a classic Civil War history that focuses on brilliant (or foolish) generals, noble deeds, and noble words. Ordinary soldiers and civilians play supporting roles as witnesses and victims. Groom does an excellent job of creating a comprehensible narrative out of the chaotic events of the Shiloh battle. As with most military history, having a map handy will help enormously. Eric Dove's measured delivery and slight Southern accent fit the narrative perfectly. While the listener may occasionally feel lost in the complexities of the battle, Dove always seems to know exactly where he is. His calming voice is a comfort amid the prevailing mayhem. F.C.
