Catton's best-selling book, A Stillness at Appomattox, a recount of the most spectacular conflicts between Generals Grant and Lee in the final year of the Civil War, earned him a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award in 1954. In 1977, the year before his death, Catton received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, from President Gerald R.

Before his death in 1978, Catton wrote a total of ten books detailing the Civil War, including his last, Grant Takes Command. Since 1984, the Bruce Catton Prize was awarded for lifetime achievement in the writing of history.

Shelfby Foote v. Bruce Catton v. James McPherson, American Civil War (heinäkuu 2017)


5838. Reflections on the Civil War, by Bruce Catton (read 16 Mar 2024) Lots of words by an expert on the War but not a single word as to direct sources. Just tells how much Cattaon knows.

A classic overview of the war that will probably seem quite familiar to folks who watched the Ken Burns series. Rather too sympathetic to the South for my tastes.

An exceptional single volume source for the whys and wherefores of a crucial piece of American History.

Outstanding history of the American civil war. Harrowing but beautifully told, with so many blunders that unnecessarily prolonged the war and caused hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths.
