Praise

“A classic work. . . . The best single-volume treatment of the Civil War. . . . A book to own and remember.”
Chicago Sun-Times
 
“This book is to Civil War history what War and Peace is to fiction. . . . An outstanding reading experience.”
Los Angeles Times
 
“Fresh and distinctive. . . . Reading it is sheer joy.”
The New York Times
 
“Bruce Catton is doing the same job on the Civil War that Carl Sandburg did for Lincoln. . . . A magnificent account which reads like a modern Iliad.”
The Miami Herald
 
“Catton writes as though he owned the War. It could not be in better hands.”
The Little Rock Arkansas Gazette
 
“Racing, exciting narrative. . . . A great book that reflects the full measure of Catton’s rare combination of talent as a writer and historian.”
The Kansas City Star
 
“The story of the Union in arms comes to life as in no other book on the war as a whole. . . . It is a as a narrative that this book achieves its distinction. From the opening chapter on to the final wonderful picture this story marches along, powerfully, breathlessly but with assurance. . . . A moving and exciting book.”
—Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune
