If every historian wrote like Bruce Catton, no one would read fiction. This marvelously well-told account of the final year of the Civil War marches readers from Wilderness, through Petersburg, and finally to the climax at Appomattox. The surrender scene, when Grant and Lee meet at last, is spine tingling. This is the third book of Catton's Army of the Potomac trilogy. It's also the best of the bunch, even though the first two, Mr. Lincoln's Army and Glory Road, are both exceptional. Not to be missed. --John Miller

I wanted to read a book by Bruce Caton, and, I enjoyed this final volume in the series. I know the way American history is taught leads many people to never pick up a book on this topic for the rest of their lives. It’s a shame that they never experienced Bruce Caton as a teacher.
However, if you are looking for detailed history of what the Union army, from general to private, experienced then Mr. Lincoln's Army is a good place to start.
Perhaps it's greatest achievement, along with The author's other works on this most American of wars, is that it inspired an entire generation of our best modern historians on The War to enter the field.
