    "For anyone as fascinated with the history of the Civil War, like I am, this series of historical novels make for very interesting reading. The third book in this series The Smoke at Dawn was just as fascinating for me as the first two books. I really enjoyed the author's narrative in combining the historical facts with interesting storytelling."

    "I knew hand-to-hand combat on the battlefield must be a horrible thing no human should have to endure, but this book made the reality of that nightmare graphically real. The blood and gore was not gratuitous. It was simply one of many miserable aspects of the battlefield experience. It needed to be described in order to see and understand the bigger picture. As disturbing as the carnage was, it was the emotional aspects of the story that stood out for me. The sheer brutally raw courage and fortitude of the soldiers on both sides of the conflict was just awesome beyond mere words. Most of the men caught in these battles would deny being heroes because in their minds they were simply trying to do their job and survive, but I came away from this book with a far greater respect for these soldiers than I already had, which was considerable to begin with."

    "While I'm not normally a fan of revolutionary war books (they tend to be too clear cut), I really appreciate this book because it deals with some harder stuff and the prose is super well written. Definitely check this one out if you're a fan of Shaara."

    "All Jeff Shaara's books are well-received, but this is a safe one from a popular series and details the events of the Vicksburg Campaign. You'd probably want to start with "A Blaze of Glory: A Novel of the Battle of Shiloh" instead, as that's the first of the set. "
