I got 3/4 of the way through and gave up. It lacks historical detail, most of the story revolves around a small circle of characters with very simple predictable plot lines. The supporting characters are all stereotyped. In this particular novel there is a riverboat captain, with his southern bell daughter, a maverick firebrand and his aged sidekick....very boring. The dialog is simple and the background and historical context simpler yet. I don't know why I held out for 3/4 of they way through book 2 in the series. Perhaps it was because I was listening on audio and daydreamed through most of it.

SHILOH, the second book in James Reasoner's The Civil War Battle Series, introduces us to Cory Brannon. Cory is the only one of the five Brannon sons to leave the home farm in Virginia. Intending to make his fortune out West, instead we find Cory barely surviving as a dock rat on the wharves of New Madrid, Missouri. Fate soon intervenes; however, involving Cory with abolitionists, riverboats, and the Lucille Farrell, daughter of a riverboat captain. Cory soon finds himself in the struggle for control of the Mississippi River. As was the first book in the series, MANASSAS, SHILOH is fast-paced, well-written, and thoroughly researched. I highly recommend it to all fans of historical fiction.

This one is the best and most understandable book I have ever found in the presentation of the battles leading up to and including Shiloh. This book makes the story of this war and the period very easy to understand the problems facing the average southern troops during the battles where they were always faced with shortages of food and basic necessesities at all times and in every engagement. The Author makes one feel that he is there in the middle of it all.
