Lee Harrington, the central figure of the novel, is a young man trying to sort out his memories of the tales of the Civil War told him by his grandfather and his father, and to imagine what their lives must have been like, and what the War had done to them. The tale ranges from past to present, from Gettysburg and Savage's Station and Shiloh to present-day Kansas. Pennell employs a fragmented, interior-monologue narrative style, giving his reader a view of the War as his characters must have experienced it, and he does it with amazing control.

"An editor does not come across such talent more than five or six times in his life...I really do not believe I ever saw a war piece that excelled it, not forgetting Tolstoi."--Maxwell Perkins
"Such a picture of the Civil War has not heretofore been painted. A fantastic and utterly original book." --Philadelphia Inquirer
"A view of the Civil War worth putting beside Brady's photographs, Grant's memoirs, and The Red Badge of Courage."--The New Republic
"One of the richest and most pungent novels of the decade." --Sinclair Lewis
"It has been some time since we have had an American novelist gifted with such power and imagination. Pennell's work will be a permanent acquisition to world literature, a product as distinctly American and as apart from the literary language of other nations as America itself is from the European scene." --Saturday Review of Literature
