    The Civil War, a Narrative

    The Civil War, a Narrative

    Foote's comprehensive history of the Civil War includes three compelling volumes: Fort Sumter to Perryville, Fredericksburg to Meridian, and Red River to Appomattox. Provided in a slipcase with pictures. The first opens with Jefferson Davis' resignation from the United States Senate and Abraham Lincoln's departure from Springfield for the national capital; and these two leaders, whose lives continually touch on the great chain of events throughout the story, are only the first of scores of exciting personalities which in effect make The Civil War: A Narrative a multiple biography set against the crisis of an age.

    In the dramatic second volume, the scope and power, the lively portrayal of exciting personalities, and the memorable recreation of events have continued unmistakably. In addition, "Fredericksburg to Meridan" covers many of the greatest and bloodiest battles of history. The authoritive narrative is dominated by the almost continual confrontation of great armies. The third book opens with the beginning of the two final, major confrontations of the war: Grant against Lee in Virginia, and Sherman pressing Johnston in North Georgia. So ends a unique achievement -- already recognized as one of the finest histories ever fashioned by an American -- a narrative of over a million and a half words which recreates on a vast and brilliant canvas the events and personalities of an American epic: The Civil War.
