In the first novel of a new trilogy, New York Times-bestselling author Jeff Shaara returns to the Civil War terrain he knows best. A Blaze of Glory takes us to the action-packed Western Theater for a vivid re-creation of one of the war’s bloodiest and most iconic engagements, the Battle of Shiloh. Drawing on meticulous research, Shaara dramatizes the key actions and decisions of the commanders on both sides: Albert Sidney Johnston, U.S. Grant, William T. Sherman, P.G.T. Beauregard, and the illustrious Nathan Bedford Forrest. Here, too, are the thoughts and voices of the junior officers, conscripts, and enlisted men who gave all for their cause.
