Shiloh

A Novel

Description

This fictional re-creation of the battle of Shiloh in April 1862 is a stunning work of imaginative history, from Shelby Foote, beloved historian of the Civil War.  Shiloh conveys not only the bloody choreography of Union and Confederate troops through the woods near Pittsburg Landing, Tennessee, but the inner movements of the combatants’ hearts and minds.  Through the eyes of officers and illiterate foot soldiers, heroes and cowards, Shiloh creates a dramatic mosaic of a critical moment in the making of America, complete to the haze of gunsmoke and the stunned expression in the eyes of dying men.
 
Shiloh, which was hailed by The New York Times as “imaginative, powerful, filled with precise visual details…a brilliant book” fulfills the standard set by Shelby Foote’s monumental three-part chronical of the Civil War.

From Publishers Weekly

Apr 08, 1991 – In the deep South during the late 1950s, three bumbling white crooks kidnap the grandson of the richest black man in Memphis. ``Foote . . . has put together a very effective combination of suspense novel and family novel,'' said PW . ``The violent ending is completely convincing, exciting, yet not totally downbeat.'' The eminent Civil War historian's fictional re-creation of a Civil War battle, Shiloh , will also appear as a Vintage paperback in April ($9 ).

Shiloh

Shelby Foote is an artful writer who brings one of the bloodiest battles of the Civil War into the realistic frame of soldiers on both sides of the line.
