The Civil War, Vol. 1: Fort Sumter to Perryville (The Civil War #1)

Shelby Foote begins a tremendous, sweeping narrative of the most fascinating conflict in our history---a war which lasted four long, bitter years, an experience more profound and meaningful than any other the American people have ever lived through. And perhaps never before have these conflicts been so clearly, so dramatically---and so excitingly---presented. The word 'narrative' is the key, not only to this extraordinary book's incandescence, but also to its truth.
