Beginning with the truly chaotic, and extremely violent, fragmenting of Missouri's loyalties, the author does a very good job in the short space allotted him describing the Union's attempts to retain Missouri in the United States.

The Road to Shiloh: Early Battles in the West is one of twenty-eight volumes from the Time-Life book series The Civil War. This series chronicles in full the events of the American Civil War. This volume describes river operations and land battles fought in Missouri, Kentucky, and Tennessee in 1861 and 1862. Topics covered include the struggle for Missouri, operations in Kentucky, the Union capture of Forts Henry and Donelson, the Battle of Shiloh, and the Battle for Island No. 10 (the tenth island south of the Ohio River's juncture with the Mississippi River). Prominent Union generals in this volume include John C. Fremont, Ulysses S. Grant, William Tecumseh Sherman, and Benjamin Prentiss; Albert Sydney Johnston, P. G. T. Beauregard, Braxton Bragg, and Nathan Bedford Forrest are the prominent leaders on the Confederate side. Union gunboats (produced by James B. Eads and developed by Samuel Pook) played a major role in this theater as they enabled Grant to capture rivers which served as avenues of invasion for the Federal forces. The Union victory at Shiloh was partly a result of the lack of a cohesive plan between Johnston and Beauregard; the death of Johnston was a devastating blow as well. Finally, the timely arrival of Union reinforcements led by Don Carlos Buell sealed the fate of the Confederate forces at Shiloh. As with other books in this series numerous photographs and maps greatly enhance the narrative. In sum, The Road to Shiloh is a succinct and informative book covering the early battles in the West during the Civil War.
