Book Description

Originally published in 1981, Long Day at Shiloh recreates the first twenty-four hours of one of the crucial battles of the American Civil War: the Battle of Shiloh.

In a series of short, cinematic takes, the book transports readers to Pittsburg Landing and into the lives of the men in the Union camp. It provides close views into the imagined thoughts and actions of individual soldiers on the eve of battle, and depicts their attack by Confederate troops on April 6 1862.

Long Day at Shiloh is a detailed historical novel offering insight into the events, trials, losses, frustrations and exhilarations of combat during the Battle of Shiloh, as the author has imagined them.
