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

<< < (2/2)

WallysWorld:
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.

Toonces:
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.

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