Collected together in a handsome boxed set, this is the perfect gift for any Civil War buff.Fort Sumter to PerryvilleHere, for a certainty, is one of the great historical narratives of our century, a unique and brilliant achievement, one that must be firmly placed in the ranks of the masters.

-Van Allen Bradley, Chicago Daily NewsAnyone who wants to relive the Civil War, as thousands of Americans apparently do, will go through this volume with pleasure.... Years from now, Footes monumental narrative most likely will continue to be read and remembered as a classic of its kind. -New York Herald Tribune Book ReviewFredericksburg to MeridianThis, then, is narrative history-a kind of history that goes back to an older literary tradition....

The writing is superb...one of the historical and literary achievements of our time. -The Washington Post Book WorldGettysburg...is described with such meticulous attention to action, terrain, time, and the characters of the various commanders that I understand, at last, what happened in that battle.... Mr. Foote has an acute sense of the relative importance of events and a novelists skill in directing the readers attention to the men and the episodes that will influence the course of the whole war, without omitting items which are of momentary interest. His organization of facts could hardly be bettered.

-AtlanticRed River to AppomattoxAn unparalleled achievement, an American Iliad, a unique work uniting the scholarship of the historian and the high readability of the first-class novelist. -Walker PercyI have never read a better, more vivid, more understandable account of the savage battling between Grants and Lees armies
