Professional reviews

"Jeff Shaara combines accounts of important Civil War battles with recommendations on what to see at 10 famous battlefields, including Shiloh, Vicksburg, and Gettysburg. Robertson Dean gives Shaara's writing an understated delivery that doesn't draw attention to itself, but always stays interesting and conveys Shaara's attitude of fascination and reverence toward his subject. Each battlefield description is divided into a historical essay and a travel guide. Shaara's advice on must-see highlights will help listeners get the most out of a battlefield trip. Thus, the book is well suited to the audio format, and listeners will want to take it along as they tour the sites covered. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine"
