About the Author:

Bruce Catton (1899-1978), author and editor, is best known as a Civil War historian. Born in Michigan, he served in the navy and worked for newspapers and the federal government before publishing his first Civil War book, Mr. Lincoln's Army, at age fifty-one. In 1954, the year he became the editor of American Heritage magazine, he was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for his book A Stillness at Appomattox.

Review:

"Everything we have come to expect from Catton: scholarly, judicious, clear and unfailingly interesting." The New York Times
