In objectivity, in range, in mastery of detail, in beauty of language and feeling for the people involved, this work surpasses anything else on the subject...It stands alongside the work of the best of them.--New Republic --.
Anyone who wants to relive the Civil War, as thousands of Americans apparently do, will go through this volume with pleasure....Years from now, Foote's monumental narrative most likely will continue to be read and remembered as a classic of its kind. --New York Herald Tribune Book Review --This text refers to the Audio CD edition.
Excellent blend of historical fact with great storytelling. Hard to put down.Published 5 days ago by leejb
Foote's work is classic and enduring. Unfortunately, the voice of Grover Gardener, the narrator, is grating, pinch-nosed and unpleasant to listen to for any length of time.Published 19 days ago by Steve Parsons
Not to bad. Narrator's voice is kind of annoying. Plus he pronounces names and cities incorrectlyPublished 1 month ago by Akmadmoose
I like Shelby Foote's look at the Civil War. Lots of details on some battles I didn't even know happened. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Mike
Unless you have unlimited time, don't start reading this. It will capture you, engage your American soul, and defy you to put it down. And believe me, you can't.Published 1 month ago by Cecil Schulte
