Shrouds of Glory is the riveting account of Confederate General John Bell Hood’s audacious attempt to vanquish the Union on the western front during the final months of the Civil War. Following the Army of Tennessee from defeat in Atlanta to heartbreak in Franklin to the devastating, controversial battle on the outskirts of Nashville that finally ended the Confederacy’s last great offensive, acclaimed novelist and historian Winston Groom takes us into the general’s tent, brilliantly combining eyewitness accounts, journal entries, and military communiqu’s to reveal the character, faults, emotions, and, most of all, the doubts that molded one of history’s most significant campaigns.

“Groom peoples his history with vivid characters. Shrouds of Glory effectively evokes the overwhelming momentousness of war.” –Christopher Lehmann–Haupt, The New York Times
