Absorbing story of the hell of Shiloh
I am a big Civil War buff, enjoying works by Shelby Foote, Bruce Catton and James McPherson. After listening to this engrossing story I now add Groom to the list of authors who can relate epic battles like Shiloh to any reader/listener. Groom tells the story of this battle, which horrified everyone North and South with it's enormous butchers bill, by following privates, citizens and generals. The story is as good as just about any thriller. The summer before Shiloh saw the battle of Bull Run, which caused about 5,000 casualties, Rebel and Yankee combined. But Shiloh had a bill in blood of 23,000 fallen, which was more than all American wars combined up to that time. Eric Dove does a great job narrating, adding life to all the actors in this nightmare battle. Listener's will not regret this purchase.

One of the Best Civil War Books
If you could sum up Shiloh, 1862 in three words, what would they be?
Very informative and entertaining
What other book might you compare Shiloh, 1862 to and why?
Similar to Rebel Yell which is another book that took me surprise. Both were engrossing.
