KB in Iowa BS: American Civil War - recommended books? (113* d) RE: BS: American Civil War - recommended books? 20 Aug 09

spaw, I actually prefer Foote even though I am a Union Man. He has a Southern slant but doesn't bludgeon the reader with it. He is from Mississippi if I recall so having a southern slant is to be expected.

Personally I really enjoy reading regimental histories, diaries and letters. These bring the realities of the war to life in way the sweeping histories, even the best of them, just can't match.
