"Magnificent . . . Intense, compelling, and thoroughly researched, this is much more than just an excellent historical novel."--Library Journal

"In this great, often moving novel of conflict, [Jeff] Shaara channels the roiling experiences of men in the midst of a tumultuous enterprise whose outcome was by no means certain."--St. Louis Post-Dispatch
