Sobre El Autor

Bruce Catton, whose complete name was Charles Bruce Catton, was born in Petoskey, Michigan, on October 9, 1899. A United States journalist and writer, Catton was one of America's most popular Civil War historians. Catton worked as a newspaperman in Boston, Cleveland, and Washington, and also held a mostrar más position at the U.S. Department of Commerce in 1948. Catton's best-selling book, A Stillness at Appomattox, a recount of the most spectacular conflicts between Generals Grant and Lee in the final year of the Civil War, earned him a Pulitzer Prize and National Book Award in 1954. In 1977, the year before his death, Catton received the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation's highest civilian honor, from President Gerald R. Ford, who noted that the author and historian "made us hear the sounds of battle and cherish peace." Before his death in 1978, Catton wrote a total of ten books detailing the Civil War, including his last, Grant Takes Command. Since 1984, the Bruce Catton Prize was awarded for lifetime achievement in the writing of history. In cooperation with American Heritage Publishing Company, the Society of American Historians in 1984 initiated the biennial prize that honors an entire body of work. It is named for Bruce Catton, prizewinning historian and first editor of American Heritage magazine. The prize consisted of a certificate and 2,500 dollars. (Bowker Author Biography) mostrar menos

5838. Reflections on the Civil War, by Bruce Catton (read 16 Mar 2024) Lots of words by an expert on the War but not a single word as to direct sources. Just tells how much Cattaon knows.

A classic overview of the war that will probably seem quite familiar to folks who watched the Ken Burns series. Rather too sympathetic to the South for my tastes.

An exceptional single volume source for the whys and wherefores of a crucial piece of American History.

Outstanding history of the American civil war. Harrowing but beautifully told, with so many blunders that unnecessarily prolonged the war and caused hundreds of thousands of unnecessary deaths.
