1 Sword, Wiley Shiloh : Bloody April
Ohio Morningside Bookshop 1983 089029-070x Cloth 
Very Good+ in a Very Good dustjacket. Bound in full gray cloth. The spine is stamped in gilt. Large octavo. [xx] + 519pps. With numerous maps and illustrations. There is a slight lean to the spine and a small sticker is affixed to the upper corner of the ffep. along with a penned date. Otherwise clean, tight, and bright. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear. The dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, has light touches of rubbing and tearing at the extremities. A very nice copy of the expanded version (the original being published in 1974).

Shiloh was a battle that took critical measure of two of America's most famous soldiers, Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman.
