    This volume is dominated by the almost continual confrontation of great armies. For the fourth time, the Army of the Potomac (now under the control of Burnside) attempts to take Richmond, resulting in the bloodbath at Fredericksburg. Then Joe Hooker tries again, only to be repulsed at Chancellorsville as Stonewall Jackson turns his flank, a bitter victory for the South, paid for by the death of Lee's foremost lieutenant.

    Christopher Morton says: "The Best of the Three Volumes"
    "An exhaustive look at our most defining moment"
    Overall

    Mr. Foote delivers the second of three volumes here, and spares no
    detail. I've studied the Civil War off an on since I was a child, and
    have discovered through this series that I know nothing.
    Aside from being minutely informative, this series is also entertaining,
    as any 60-hour audiobook should be. There is plenty of colorful turn
    of phrase here, and a lot of the wit of Lincoln, and others, is entirely
    new to me.
