The March by E.L.Doctorow. This tale of the Civil War by a National Book Award winner begins in Georgia, just a few minutes ahead of Sherman's driving march to the sea. Doctorow puts the reader in the heart of the action, introducing characters from both sides of the conflict. Soldiers, former slaves, landowners, and even General Sherman himself are drawn in a way that makes you feel as if you are there with them. Good reading for Civil War buffs or for anyone who likes a bit of history with their fiction.
