From the first passage in William C. Davis? book about ?the twilight of America?s innocence: to the last, the reader is carried through what many in the 1860s believed would be the only major conflict between North and South. So optimistic were the people in Washington that a crowd of civilians came from the city with picnic hampers to witness the crushing defeat of the upstart ?rebels.? The following day, however, the mood would shatter in a battle that confounded the expectations of both sides?the first Battle at Bull Run. It was a training ground for some of America?s most colorful military figures: P.G.T. Beauregard, Joe Johnson, Irvin McDowell, and ?Stonewall? Jackson. It also marked the first strategic use of railroads and was perhaps the first time the horrors of battle were photographed for the people back home. Drawing from a wealth of material?old letters, journals, memoirs, and military records?Davis brings to life a vivid and vital chapter in American history.… (mer)

As a longtime historian of the Civil War, William C. Davis has written extensively about the conflict. This is one of his earliest works, a study of the campaign fought in northeastern Virginia in the summer of 1861. Davis's skills as a writer are on full display, as he provides an entertaining narrative that details the events of the battle as best he can. The book suffers, though, from a paucity of maps; those provided are only for the battle itself, and these are of inferior quality. This is the only serious criticism of the book, however, which remains the best single-volume study of the first major clash between the Union and the Confederacy. ( )

This is a very servicable account of the Battle of Bull Run. Nothing amazing. All the usual suspects are there. At the end of the book the Confederates still win, and the Yankees still run away. ( )
