A Blaze of Glory
by Jeff Shaara
Ballantine Books (2012) Hardcover, 435 pages
Jeff Shaara has produced a riveting account of The Battle of Shiloh, an important campaign during the Civil War. All of the historical facts are there, with the added bonus of Shaara’s imagination filling in the dialogue, which really brought the history to life. This is the first volume of a trilogy, and I am eager to read the next two books in the series. Highly recommended for those interested in Civil War History, American History and well written Historical Fiction.
