Recensioner i media

"Groom has given the Battle of Shiloh the mega attention that it deserves by writing a book with the storytelling appeal of fiction but solidly backed with fact.... This is a book that will stay with you for a very long time." -The Washington Post "Groom enhances his solid reputation as a writer of general audience military history with this narrative of the Civil War's first major battle in the west." -Publisher's Weekly "This thrilling narrative account of Shiloh from the bestselling author of Forest Gump, is a vivid portrayal of key players and epic moments that changed America's understanding of the war." -Publishers Weekly Top 10: History and Military History "Stirring Civil War history from the author of Forest Gump....The emphasis on the human element gives the book a power that sets it apart from most military histories." -Kirkus [Starred Review] "Including pertinent military detail about weapons and organization, Groom's compositional acumen makes Shiloh move quickly, vividly, graphically, and perfectly for armchair buff and battlefield visitor alike." -Booklist "Groom's gripping narrative is full of absorbing firsthand accounts from drummer boys, officers and enlisted men, nurses, and civilians...A provocatively rendered and persuasively argued study that demands a central place in Civil War historiography." -Library Journal (Starred Review)
