Bruce Catton was a journalist and historian of the American Civil War. He won a Pulitzer Prize for history in 1954 for A Stillness at Appomattox, his study of the final campaign of the war in Virginia. He died in 1978.
"A classic work. . . . The best single-volume treatment of the Civil War. . . . A book to own and remember." --Chicago Sun-Times "This book is to Civil War history what War and Peace is to fiction. . . . An outstanding reading experience." --Los Angeles Times "Fresh and distinctive. . . . Reading it is sheer joy." --The New York Times "Bruce Catton is doing the same job on the Civil War that Carl Sandburg did for Lincoln. . . . A magnificent account which reads like a modern Iliad." --The Miami Herald "Catton writes as though he owned the War. It could not be in better hands." --The Little Rock Arkansas Gazette "Racing, exciting narrative. . . . A great book that reflects the full measure of Catton's rare combination of talent as a writer and historian." --The Kansas City Star "The story of the Union in arms comes to life as in no other book on the war as a whole. . . . It is a as a narrative that this book achieves its distinction. From the opening chapter on to the final wonderful picture this story marches along, powerfully, breathlessly but with assurance. . . . A moving and exciting book." --Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune
