Sturdy. Light fading/staining on page edges. No underlines. The passion of Robert E. Lee and the puritan streak in J.E.B. Stuart are two of the surprises in Alf J.

"In words that weave history into art, Bruce Catton has created a book about the coming of the Civil War that is at once a broad canvas and a revealing close-up. Different from anything he has written before, except in the sheer beauty of its narrative style, The Coming Fury is conceived as classic tragedy; as a series of ever-narrowing circles of choice with fewer and fewer men to make them, enclosing, finally, but two men faced with almost no choice at all. Through these pages move the men who guided - and who followed - the nation toward conflict: the extremists, the moderates, and those me... View more info
