Praise

“Groom has given the Battle of Shiloh the mega attention that it deserves by writing a book with the storytelling appeal of fiction but solidly backed with fact…. This is a book that will stay with you for a very long time.” The Washington Post

“Groom enhances his solid reputation as a writer of general audience military history with this narrative of the Civil War’s first major battle in the west.” –Publisher’s Weekly 

“This thrilling narrative account of Shiloh from the bestselling author of Forest Gump, is a vivid portrayal of key players and epic moments that changed America’s understanding of the war.”
Publishers Weekly Top 10: History and Military History

“Stirring Civil War history from the author of Forest Gump….The emphasis on the human element gives the book a power that sets it apart from most military histories.” Kirkus [Starred Review]

“Including pertinent military detail about weapons and organization, Groom’s compositional acumen makes Shiloh move quickly, vividly, graphically, and perfectly for armchair buff and battlefield
visitor alike.” Booklist 

“Groom’s gripping narrative is full of absorbing firsthand accounts from drummer boys, officers and enlisted men, nurses, and civilians…A provocatively rendered and persuasively argued study that demands a central place in Civil War historiography.” Library Journal (Starred Review)
