No, I did not write this. WriterJWA has very kindly offered to continue our book review section. I just have to give him instructions on how to post these himself. But he emailed me his first article. If you like this sort of content on the site, please leave him some feedback.

I've also put the Book Review section back on the home page, since he will be sending more of his work to the site.

Thanks WriterJWA!

Shiloh: A Novel 5 years, 6 months ago #3

Thats a great review, and I read that novel, years ago, and remember it fondly. I could smell the magnolia flowers and ardor of the Southern staff officer on Johnston's staff. But then, become embroiled in the "dirty work" of a Union soldier. Despite that, Foote, a terriffic story teller in the Faulk or Twain manner, absoulutely falls short against the more polished Michael Shaara's work. I loved Mr. Foote's work and met him on several ocassions, and as a Southern man, loved his story telling skills. His voice alone is haunting and of the peroid and would transfer better to an audio version, but alas, its gone to the ages.
(FWI) He Passed almost the same time as Brian C. Pohanka, another friend, victor of the cause. I knew, and remember both men vividly. Sorry for my spelling and writing skills, Jim Beam is not condusive to great litteracy.

Right on 2nd Texas. Save a swallow or two of that Beam for me.

Foote is one of the few people that I would give anything to go back and meet. Just to hear one of his stories. I'm going to have to pick that book up now.
