While there is plenty of discussion of the battles here, there are fewer micro-descriptions of movements and individual heroics. Engle provides the "big picture" analysis of the campaigns, devoting as much space to behind-the-lines maneuvering and command disputes as he does to actual operations on the battlefield.
Though readers get less of a sense of what transpired within the minds of individual soldiers, they are offered a much clearer assessment of the larger issues connected to each engagement. The actual fighting at Shiloh receives only a few pages, but the decisions and maneuvering that culminated in the engagement receive more than a chapter.
The result is a pleasantly readable volume that will be appreciated by a large audience, especially those with limited understanding of the campaigns conducted in the heartland. As with most books, the author's decision to emphasize certain processes and events explains the book's strengths but also invariably results in some corresponding shortcomings. Some readers may find this volume lacking in drama. The death of Albert Sidney Johnston during the battle of Shiloh is treated almost as a footnote, just as the misery of the soldiers engaged in the various battles are treated merely as points of fact.
Drama, though, abounds in scores of volumes and often proves to detract from scholarship as much as it entertains the reader. Item Information Condition:. Sign in to check out Check out as guest.
