Book description

Shelby Foote's monumental 3-part chronicle of the Civil War was hailed by Walker Percy as "an unparalleled achievement, an American Iliad, a unique work uniting the scholarship of the historian & the high readability of the 1st-class novelist."
Drawn from Foote's acclaimed & massive The Civil War: A Narrative—the central chapter of the central volume, & therefore the capstone of the arch—this new addition to the Modern Library offers a matchless account of the epic Gettysburg Campaign. Complete with detailed maps, Stars in Their Courses brilliantly recreates the 3-day conflict: it is a masterly treatment of a key great battle & the events that preceded it—not as legend has it but as it really was, before it became distorted by controversy & overblown by remembered glory.
