In this missive, Ambrose Bierce recounts two days -April 6, and April 7, 1862 - perhaps the two most significant days of his life. He and over 100,000 other combatants have gathered about a small church near the town of Corinth, "a wretched place - the capital of a swamp, two days' march west of the Tennessee River". The church is Shiloh, and it will lend its name to the great battle that is to take place there.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
What other book might you compare What I Saw at Shiloh to and why?

Have you listened to any of John Michaels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Any additional comments?

Very interesting description of what its like to be in the thick of battle. In a word, horrific.
Interesting book, I recommend this to anyone who loves to be transported to a different era.

A bit hard for a modern reader to understand, but beautiful prose describing horrendous and hideouts vistas.
