A splendid analysis...in the tradition of Killer Angels...Shiloh is an excellent read.
The Plain Dealer
Shiloh is a riveting account of a confused battle fought on a rugged terrain by volunteer forces who still more closely resembled armed mobs than trained armies....Rich in anecdotal detail.

Shiloh will be appreciated by any Civil War bug who, dissatisfied with less complete accounts of this memorable battle in the West, delights in a carefully crafted and detailed re-creation of the Battle of Shiloh, the first great bloody battle of the war.
A detailed account of those who led for the North and the South, blunders that were made on both sides, the ineptness of certain generals, the political machinations that took place in Washington and Richmond, and an examination of the personalities of high-ranking officers.
The Orlando Sentinel
A penetrating analysis that makes a convincing case for the importance of the Shiloh campaign as one of the turning points of the Civil War
