Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0385044518, Paperback)If every historian wrote like Bruce Catton, no one would read fiction. This marvelously well-told account of the final year of the Civil War marches readers from Wilderness, through Petersburg, and finally to the climax at Appomattox. The surrender scene, when Grant and Lee meet at last, is spine tingling. This is the third book of Catton's Army of the Potomac trilogy. It's also the best of the bunch, even though the first two, Mr. Lincoln's Army and Glory Road, are both exceptional. Not to be missed. --John Miller

Undoubtedly Catton's most brilliant books, A Stillness at Appomattox won both the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award for excellence in nonfiction. Caton recounts the most spectacular conflicts between Grant and Lee and details the end of hope for the Confederacy.
