This is the first of Shaara's books I have read (despite repeated recommendations from my Dad). It describes important history in the style of a historical novel, mixing fictional characters with famous personalities. I found it a great way to bring life to a history that could have been very dry and hard to understand. What is interesting is that this book is the first in a new series of four books, all dealing with important aspects of the Western theatre of the American Civil War, and I look forward to the next installment.
