From the Publisher
"Combined with excellent maps, Shea's description of the operational maneuvers and his detailing of the tactical actions are masterful. . . . A superb account of a signature campaign of the theater."
-Journal of Military History
"The definitive study of an important campaign that heretofore has not received the scholarly attention its significance merits. . . . A fascinating analysis of the personal, geographical, and strategic elements that led to the fateful clash in northwest Arkansas."
"If further proof were needed of William L. Shea's mastery of the Civil War campaign history, this is it. . . . He has attained even loftier heights with a thoughtful and meticulous account of Prairie Grove."
-Civil War Book Review
"William Shea set the standard for campaign narrative in his classic work Pea Ridge: Civil War Campaign in the West. In Fields of Blood, he has raised the bar and established himself as the foremost historian on the Civil War in the Trans-Mississippi. Smooth. Polished. Riveting!"
