For years, I had looked at those volumes on book store shelves, and promised myself that I would read it.
That said, these volumes do an outstanding job of recounting both the macro military/political issues and the anecdotes and detail which make history come alive.
Shelby Foote's books are a great and rare resource for Civil War history buffs and I highly recommend this book set.
