Shelby Foote's ACW trilogy if you've already read McPherson's book?

<< < (2/2)

Thanks for the replies. I went ahead and ordered Foote's first book and will see later if I want the other two books in the series.

Foote's trilogy gives you way, way more information on the war and the battles than in McPherson.  I think the portion on Gettysburg alone is like 150 pages.  It's a real commitment to get through all three volumes, but if you're an ACW fan I can't see how you can pass up those iconic books.

Bruce Catton's books are also very well written.

I'm hoping to get to my collection of Catton's books next year (after finishing Churchill's WW2).
