His tactics, attitude, leadership traits, and skill on the battlefield brought out his character and influence on the Southern cause.
General George Thomas, the Virginian, was also presented well. I learned so much more about him than I'd previously known. I liked his steadfastness and dependability. Students should learn more about this man. His voice matches the time period perfectly. He is not trite, simple, or boring. His voice is easy to listen to, his pronunciations are accurate, and he portrays the narrative and its author perfectly.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you? The events portrayed in this volume are perhaps the least known to most Americans excluding Sherman's March and Appomattox , as they definitely were to me. The Overland Campaign was brutal, and Shelby Foote tells its story in a way that makes it very interesting.
I was amazed by the shear scale of those sets of battles, and the determination it took for the Union to follow through with the campaign. Any additional comments? I don't hesitate to say that this series is the best volume of history I've ever read. I didn't consider myself a student of the Civil War before reading; now that I'm finished, I look forward to reading more about this tragic period of American history. Thank you to Shelby Foot and to all those who helped gather the information for this book. I have come to many of the same conclusions in my mind about the Civil War prior to this book.
This just reaffirms my thoughts and impressions. I am grateful but it was put together in such a way that made the understanding of the battles in the Civil War more understandable. The narration by Grover Gardner was fantastic thank you for doing such a great job.
Civil War: A Narrative, Vol. 3: Red River to Appomattox
I did not want to stop listening to it. Whereas the first 2 volumes had their lulls. I imagine the actual war had the same pattern for those that lived it. The last chapter maybe the best. I did expect there would be much to add, since the title states Appomattox as the final stop. But the reflection on the cost of the war in terms of lives lost and other points really brought the story forward.
People tend to talk of the Civil War in terms of heroes and villains.
After this book, I have a greater appreciation of the collective costs to the entire country, the trauma of the event some effects are still with us , and also the opportunities that came from it our military might has its true beginnings here. The very detailed narrative is weighted toward southern victories. Example: every victorious action by Bedford Forrest related in detail. His final action, in which he was routed, gets only passing mention.
I may reread Bruce Carlton as an antidote. Just finished the 3rd and final volume. For me the whole work was engrossing and fascinating and I am grateful to have had the experience. Well done Mr. After listening to all three of Shelby Foote's Civil War books over the last 2 months I feel fatigued.
