Book #52: Gods and Generals

I've been trying to finish this book for a long time. I started in mid-June, when I realized that I was going to visit Gettysburg for probably the 50th time. Surprisingly enough, that isn't much of an exaggeration, if at all. Anyway, I generally have trouble with historical "novels" of this sort. More military tactics and humanity, but Jeff Shaara's Gods and Generals appealed to me.

In the beginning of the novel, I really enjoyed reading because not only does it follow around generals during the war, it focused on their relationships with others, family lives, livelihoods before the war. It was very interesting. Then, I got a little bored with it toward the center because it was just military tactics, but the last five or so chapters really redeemed the book for me and I started to really enjoy it.

Rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
