      Great way to describe the trilogy. So true. And I’m glad it is. He really opens the whole war to the reader. They are excellent, IMHO.

      One of the things I have always liked about Foote is the way he chronologically organized the volumes.

       

      Most general CW histories will go on for chapters -- perhaps volumes -- about the fighting in Virginia, then, along about Gettysburg they shift and start the tale in the West.

       

      Foote tells it more like they lived it: a week or so in one theater then a week or so elsewhere. For instance, because Foote has been covering the West as well as the East, the appearance of John Pope is not a surprise.

       

      In addition his dozens of little battle maps help the reader understand what is going on.

      Take care,

      Bob
