A Blaze of Glory

A Novel of the Battle of Shiloh

Ballantine Books

"[An] exciting read . . . [Jeff] Shaara returns to the U.S. Civil War in this first book of a new trilogy. . . . This novel is meticulously researched and brings a vivid reality to the historical events depicted."-Library Journal
NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
Spring 1862. The Confederate Army in the West teeters on the brink of collapse. General Albert Sidney Johnston is forced to abandon the critical city of Nashville and rally his troops in defense of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. Hot on Johnston's trail are two of the Union's best generals: Ulysses Grant and Don Carlos Buell. If their combined forces can crush Johnston's army and capture the railroad, the war in the West likely will be over. There's just one problem: Johnston knows of the Union plans and is poised to launch an audacious surprise attack on Grant's encampment-a small settlement in southwestern Tennessee anchored by a humble church named Shiloh.
Drawing on meticulous research, Jeff Shaara dramatizes the key decisions of the commanders on both sides of the conflict-and brings to life the junior officers, conscripts, and enlisted men who gave their all for the cause. With stunning immediacy, Shaara takes us inside the maelstrom of Shiloh as no novelist has before.
"Brilliant . . . riveting . . . a work to be embraced."-Bookreporter
Includes a preview of Jeff Shaara's next Civil War novel, A Chain of Thunder.
