    Om Civil War: A Narrative

    This final volume of Shelby Foote's masterful narrative history of the Civil War brings to life the military endgame, the surrender at Appomattox, and the tragic denouement of the warthe assassination of President Lincoln. Features maps throughout. "An unparalleled achievement, an American Iliad, a unique work uniting the scholarship of the historian and the high readability of the first-class novelist." Walker Percy ';To read this chronicle is an awesome and moving experience. History and literature are rarely so thoroughly combined as here; one finishes this volume convinced that no one need undertake this particular enterprise again.' Newsweek ';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. . . . Written in the tradition of the great historian-artistsGibbon, Prescott, Napier, Freemanit stands alongside the work of the best of them.' The New Republic ';The most written-about war in history has, with this completion of Shelby Foote's trilogy, been given the epic treatment it deserves.' Providence Journal
