"A splendid analysis" of this bloody Civil War battle: "In the tradition of The Killer Angels . . . Shiloh is an excellent read." —Houston Chronicle

The battle of Shiloh, fought in April 1862 in the wilderness of south central Tennessee, marked a savage turning point in the Civil War. In this masterful book, Larry Daniel re-creates the drama and the horror of the battle and discusses in authoritative detail the political and military policies that led to Shiloh; the personalities of those who formulated and executed the battle plans; the fateful misjudgments made on both sides; and the heroism of the small-unit leaders and ordinary soldiers who manned the battlefield.

"The bloodbath at Shiloh, Tenn. brought an end to any remaining innocence in the Civil War. The combined 23,000 casualties that the two armies inflicted on each other in two days shocked North and South alike . . . a superbly researched volume that will appeal to both the beginning Civil War reader as well as those already familiar with the course of fighting in the wooded terrain bordering the Tennessee River." —Publishers Weekly

"By juxtaposing accounts of fighting along the lines with scenes of political infighting in Washington and Richmond, Daniel shows how the politics of command, personal jealousies, piecemeal intelligence, and the skills of small-unit commanders affected the outcome of the battle." —Library Journal

"Daniel . . . exhibits balanced judgment, thorough research, and the ability to explain strategy well to the lay reader." —Booklist

"A riveting account . . . rich in anecdotal detail." —The Plain Dealer
