Book Description: Random House, Inc., 2005. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Dust Jacket Condition: New. 1st Edition. New hardcover, later printing (c. 2005) of the first volume of Shelby Foote's magisterial narrative history of the American Civil War, superb mylar-protected jacket, excellent text-block exterior w/ cut-page style side edge & pristine smooth-cut top & bottom edges, flawless library-durable gray cloth-over-boards cover w/ excellent edges & corners, tight sewn binding w/ handsome cloth header bands, illustrated w/ forty-four maps throughout the text & w/ superb color end-paper maps w/ front end-papers showing Theater of War (1861-1862) & back end-papers showing the Virginia Theater (1861-1862) * 6.75" x 9.50", 1.32 kg, 840 pp. * This classic narrative history is the first volume of Shelby Foote's magisterial three-volume history of the American Civil War. This book opens w/ Jefferson Davis' resignation from the United States Senate & Abraham Lincoln's departure from Springfield, Illinois for the national capital. These two leaders, whose lives are continually woven into the great chain of events which unfold throughout the story, are only the first of scores of compelling personalities which in effect make "The Civil War: A Narrative" a multiple biography set against the crisis of an age. * All the great battles are here, of course, from Bull Run through Shiloh, the Seven Days, Second Manassas, & Antietam & Perryville in the fall of 1862, as are smaller but often equally important engagements on both land & sea: Ball's Bluff, Fort Donelson, Pea Ridge, Island Ten, New Orleans, the "Monitor" vs. the "Merrimac", Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign, among many more, and all of these conflicts are dramatically presented w/ "narrative" the key not only to this book's incandescence but also to its truth told entirely from the points of view of the people involved. The reader learns not only what was happening in the North & South, on the political, military, diplomatic & home fronts -- the reader LIVES through the events as if experiencing them directly. This is the way it was, in its entirety, as Shelby Foote discovered it through his many years of exhaustive research. * In its depth of understanding & its truly remarkable portrayal of personalities, "The Civil War: A Narrative", and this volume which forms its first part, stands as an authoritative achievement of monumental stature.
