Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In the deep South during the late 1950s, three bumbling white crooks kidnap the grandson of the richest black man in Memphis. ``Foote . . . has put together a very effective combination of suspense novel and family novel,'' said PW . ``The violent ending is completely convincing, exciting, yet not totally downbeat.'' (Apr.) The eminent Civil War historian's fictional re-creation of a Civil War battle, Shiloh , will also appear as a Vintage paperback in April ($9 ISBN 0-679-73542-9 ).
From Barnes & Noble
A brilliant historical novel based on one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War, and a look into the hearts and minds of the soldiers who fought for two days in the woods near Pittsburgh Landing, Tennessee. From Lieutenant Palmer Metcalfe to Private Luther Dade, Foote's diverse cast of characters comprise unforgettable portraits. Here are ordinary men in extraordinary circumstances, trapped in a shower of bullets, blinded by the haze of gunsmoke--participants in a critical moment in American history. "A remarkable achievement...a work of art."--Van Allen Bradley.

Shelby Foote was born on November 7, 1916 in Greenville, Mississippi, and attended school there until he entered the University of North Carolina. During World War II he served as a captain of field artillery but never saw combat. After World War II he worked briefly for the Associated Press in their New York bureau. In 1953 he moved to Memphis, where he lived for the remainder of his life.Foote was the author of six novels: Tournament, Follow Me Down, Love in a Dry Season, Shiloh, Jordan County, and September, September. He is best remembered for his 3-volume history The Civil War: A Narrative, which took twenty years to complete and resulted in his being a featured expert in Ken Burns' acclaimed Civil War documentary. Over the course of his writing career, Foote was also awarded three Guggenheim fellowships.Shelby Foote died in 2005 at the age of 88.

    A reviewer

    Very good read. Terrific first novel by a man who would later leave us the best overall treatment of the Civil War yet produced. When I read 'Shiloh' a couple of years ago, I couldn't help but notice the similarity in the the way Michael and later Jeff Shaara used Foote's literary device of rotating between the perspectives of Union and Confederate, officer and enlisted man throughout the narrative. This is a very effective way to tell a story and the readability of such books as 'Killer Angels' and ' Gods & Generals' seems to have evolved from observance of Foote's methodology.

    Great Novel By Foote!!!!!!!

    I read this book for a college class of mine and highly enjoyed reading it. This is one of few books that has ever kept my attention for an extended period of time. I would encourage anyone of any age to read this book.

    A great book with good historical insight

    A fast paced, page turning book that kept me going and going. It was a great book that gave insight to what it was like to fight in the battle of Shiloh!
