Here is the final volume of the highly acclaimed narrative history named one of the best nonfiction books of the century by National Review.

In The Civil War: A Narrative, Vol. 3, Shelby Foote follows the events of the war from 1862 through 1864, discussing the strategies of both the North and the South and assessing the performance of the Union generals. The book opens with the beginning of the two final, major confrontations of the war: Grant against Lee in Virginia and Sherman pressing Johnston in North Georgia. In vivid narrative as seen from both sides, he tells of the climactic struggles, great and small, on and off the field of battle, that finally decided the fate of this nation.

The Civil War: A Narrative, Vol. 3 brings to a close the story of four years of turmoil and strife that altered American life forever.

Quotes & Awards

  • “An unparalleled achievement, an American Iliad, a unique work uniting the scholarship of the historian and the high readability of the first-class novelist.”

    Walker Percy, New York Times bestselling author

  • “To reread Foote is to see how the greatest historians are those who recognize that the past, like the present, is shaped by flawed, flesh-and-blood individuals, from presidents to foot soldiers.”

    Jon Meacham, New York Times bestselling author

  • “The lucidity of the battle narratives, the vigor of the prose, the strong feeling for the men from generals to privates who did the fighting…Foote has the novelist’s feeling for character and situation, without losing the historian’s scrupulous regard for recorded fact.”
