Foote's attention to detail is amazing! Details of events are enlarged by descriptions of terrain, weather, the emplacement, the conversations between characters, even their physical descriptions and backgrounds. The only regret of an Audiobook is not having a map available to follow the narrative! My favorite quote by Foote in the Burns "Civil War" series was, "in 1776 our Forefathers got together to create a new Nation. 87 years later, they got back together to work out the Details!" This 3-volume work does true justice to this most important part of American History.
