Review: A Blaze of Glory | Shiloh, Bloody Shiloh

A Blaze of Glory
Jeff Shaara (2012)

My historical road trip last summer took me to the Civil War battlefield in Shiloh, Tennessee. I brought along this book to illuminate events and further my understanding of what was (up to that point) the bloodiest day in U.S. history. As always, author Jeff Shaara has conjured up comprehensive, stirring, and intimate battlefield fiction with dialog and description that paints a vivid picture of events as they unfolded. Gripping and very readable, A Blaze of Glory is accessible for even the most novice of history buffs, but probably not for everyone.
