  • Best books on Shiloh

    What would you feel is the best book on Shiloh and why?

    Have only read a bit and we are thinking about a Western Campaigns tour for next year and would like some input on the best sources... Let's start with Shiloh...

      Though I'm afraid I haven't read it, supposedly Shelby Foote's book on it is supposed to be good, and the famous Killer Angels was loosely based on the format.

      EDIT: I noticed there is a post discussing a new book on Shiloh in the forum, a bit further down.

        Yes. That's what got me thinking about asking. I did not want to hone in on the thread so I started a new one.

          Feel free to "hone" in. BTW, Did you read the new book? The editors have a historiography of the battle in the intro to the new book. They answer the question you asked above and explain why, too.
          I come here to discuss a piece of business with you and what are you gonna do? You're gonna tell me fairy tales? James Caan in the movie "Thief" ca 1981

              Like I posted above, feel free to join in the thread. BTW, I'm midway through the chapter about the fighting near the crossroads, which the author and the editors believe was the crux of the fighting and the turning point of the first day's fighting.
