    It Just Keeps Getting Better...

    Here is the second installment of Foote's three-volume narrative history of the Civil War. This simply is the best and most entertaining history of the civil war that I have ever read or know of. The book opens with the continued string of Confederate, defensive victories under the great Robert E. Lee. Lee repels Burnside at Fredricksburg and Hooker at Chancellorsville. Lee pays dearly for his victory at Chancellorsville as he looses Stonewall Jackson to friendly fire. The book gives extended length coverage of the climatic Gettysburg campaign, where Lee is finally repelled from his own invasion attempt, launched to relieve pressure on the besieged city of Vicksburg. Having visited both the battlefield at Vicksburg and Gettysburg, I especially appreciated Foote's rich narrative history of these great battles. In fact, I read Stephen W. Sears acclaimed books on Chancellorsville and Gettysburg and found that Foote's version is imminently more entertaining and enlightening. The story progresses with Grant's victory over Vicksburg and the loss of the Mississippi River to the South. The South responds with its own impressive victory at Chickamauga under Braxton Bragg's leadership and besieges the city of Chattanooga. U.S. Grant is promoted and arrives in time to reverse the fate of the North at Chattanooga and repel Bragg's army into Georgia. The book draws to a close with Grant's elevation to the highest-ranking Union General, given line command of all Union forces arrayed to destroy the Rebellion. I can't say enough about the book. If you are interested in Civil War history, you just have to read this book.
