This powerful story of a young rifleman's agony during the Battle of FRanklin in 1864 ranks with the foremost novels of the Civil War. This book symbolizes the rifleman's sense of doom in the misdst of Union cannons firing upon John Bell Hood's Army of Tennessee. That army literally dissappears in a hail of rifle and cannon fire from the Union entrenchments. Bushrod Carter's senses record the Confederate charge and it's deadly consequences with the clarity of Michael Shaara's Killer Angels and the poetry of Stephen Vincent Benet's epic "John Brown's Body"
