The Civil War: A Narrative
Oct 06, 2011
The definitive book on the military history of the American Civil War. Well researched and authoritative, however Foote is 'soft' on the Confederacy and is even handed between the north and the south. He fails to adequately call to account the institution of slavery, a horror which is one of the few historical events which can be compared with the holocaust in terms of its horrors and numbers of causalities.
