A blaze of glory [sound recording] : [a novel of the Battle of Shiloh]

From Library Journal:

Having addressed World War II (The Steel Wave; The Rising Tide; No Less Than Victory; The Final Storm), Shaara returns to the U.S. Civil War in this first book of a new trilogy that will cover the war in the West, which here means Kentucky, Tennessee, and nearby areas. The focus is the savage bloodletting at the still controversial battle of Shiloh in 1862. Future books are planned for the battle of Vicksburg and Sherman's March to the Sea. As always with Shaara's military fiction, this novel is meticulously researched and brings a vivid reality to the historical events depicted. Generals and enlisted men are all fully fleshed and honestly portrayed; they are proud, vain, fearful, and brave as they fight through the horror and confusion of the battle. Verdict Shaara admits that his books are not quite history and not quite novels. Civil War buffs and ordinary readers who enjoy history will find his latest work an informative and exciting read.
