Subject: RE: Shelby Foote's Civil War Volumes

Message Detail:
I am considering purchasing Shelby Foote's 14 volume series on the American Civil War. Does anyone have any recommendations one way or the other on his stuff? Thanks.

I'm not familiar with the 14 volume set, but I have read many of his works over the years and have found them to be excellent. One thing to remember is that "he is not a historian....he is a story-teller", to paraphrase his own words. In his books, you can tell that he has thoroughly done his homework.
