By May 1863, the Civil War had become not only a war of courage and loyalty but also a war of attrition and unimaginable sacrifice. Narrator Paul Michael covers a lot of ground in this tense and detailed account of the six-week siege and fall of the last Southern stronghold on the Mississippi River. Michael gives a balanced and focused voice to well-known historic figures such as Generals Ulysses S. Grant and William T. Sherman, and Confederate Commander John C. Pemberton, as well as Fritz Bauer, a Union sharpshooter, and Lucy Spence, a Confederate nurse. The portraits, vivid when heard, are drawn from the author's exhaustive research. The listener may very well come to the conclusion that Shaara doesn't just write historical fiction--he writes historical reenactment.
