"Shiloh recounts one of the major battles of the Civil War through the overlapping first-person accounts of several participants. Rather than challenge the virtuosity of a soloist, Recorded Books has assembled a cast of 14 readers, including the author, for this recording. This is not, strictly speaking, an ensemble performance, much less a dramatization, because the readers never interact. Each character's monologue stands by itself. They are all very well done. The prevailing tone is low key, almost conversational, as if one is listening to men of mature years reflecting on events well in the past. A solid selection for general interest collections. J.N.
