A little bit Faulkner, a little bit Huck Finn, a lotta bit Stephen Crane... I was set to give it four stars until Mr. Foote poisoned the novel with the idea that the South lost because they were just... too... damn... noble to be victorious. Eww.

Still, if you want to get inside the minds of the soldiers, and be a witness to the great moments of this bloody battle, you could do a lot worse. Recommended for Civil War buffs.
