  • “The Coming Fury” is the first volume of Bruce Catton’s Centennial of the Civil War trilogy, which was originally published between 1961 and 1965.

    “The Coming Fury” chronicles the coming of the American Civil War, and details its causes. Although the root causes of the war go back to at least the 1850s, Catton begins his story with the presidential election of 1860. Politics in the United States had become increasingly polarized by then, with the major issue being slavery. The southern states wanted to preserve their “peculiar institution” (as slavery was then euphemistically termed), and the majority in the northern states wanted to see it either restricted or abolished altogether. With the nomination and eventual election of Abraham Lincoln as President, many southern states, led by South Carolina, found the excuse they were looking for to secede from the Union.

    In “The Coming Fury,” Catton provides a highly detailed narrative of the months leading up to the bombardment of Fort Sumter in Charleston, South Carolina in April 1861. He shows Lincoln’s determination to hold on to the fort, and the unsuccessful efforts he made to relieve Major Robert Anderson and the fort’s garrison. Catton continues his outstanding narrative through the first few months of the war, until the first battle of Manassas (also known as the first battle of Bull Run) on July 21, 1861.

    I remember having read Bruce Catton’s Centennial History of the Civil War when I was in high school – not too long after they were first published. I remember thinking back then how much I liked the trilogy and the author who wrote them. Today I am in the process of reading these marvelous books for only the second time in my life. Fifty years have gone by, and my high regard for them, and for Bruce Catton as the finest Civil War historian of the twentieth century, remains undimmed. The Centennial History of the Civil War, led by “The Coming Fury,” remains a remarkable work of scholarship that has stood the test of time very well. Most highly recommended.

  • Just one of two excellent trilogies on the Civil War by Bruce Catton. If Catton wrote menus I'd read those too. The books are older but rarely ever feel like it. I added the Audible narration to the first 2 books in the series ("Coming Fury", "Terrible Swift Sword"), and enjoy listening to them.

    Just too bad that Amazon won't allow adding Audible narration to "Never Call Retreat".

  • The final book of Catton's Centennial trilogy points an exclamation point on the tragedy of America's most

    Catton's final book in his Centennial trilogy brings the tragedy of America's most costly war to confrontation. All of the rhetoric that buffeted Lincoln; all of the incompetence of the political generals; all of the loss of life in battlefield gallantry; all of the misfortunes and the quirks of history are gathered to leave the reader shaking his head wondering where logic and morality went astray. Reading the entire works should be accompanied with Shelby Foote's trilogy for a North/South picture of what happens when leaders run amuck.

  • This is the third of Bruce Catton's three book Centennial history of the Civil War. While one can treat the books as independent, I strongly suggest reading the books in sequence.

    Lincoln in a riverboat conference with Grant and Sherman hoped the anticipated last battles on the two main fronts could be avoided, but the generals were openly not optimistic. But Lincoln's desire to end the war quickly was not only based on loss of life. Lincoln also hoped that he could staunch the bleeding of dollars spent fielding and supporting the massive armies of the Union.

    After the fighting, the highest priority became the reintegration of the seceded states back into the federal union. But exactly how that was to be done was the topic of endless debates. There was a need to rebuild cities and railroads damaged or destroyed so as to get the economy (primarily in the south) back on its feet. But anger against the South was flamed by the Lincoln assassination and many punitive actions resulted.

    Other comments:

    Bruce Catton wrote other books such as "Grant Moves South" that are well worth your valuable reading time. For the highly interested reader, Shelby Foote's multi-volume history is another excellent source of information. Lastly, Grant's autobiography is a no-nonsense recounting of the war -- Grant felt there was no need to talk about more than his perspective of the war as that, and not his life's story, is what his readers would really be interested about.

  • Bruce Catton's The Coming Fury is the first volume in a trilogy about the Civil War which also contains Terrible Swift Sword and Never Call Retreat. Bruce Catton is one of the foremost writers on the Civil War and he does not disappoint with this work. In this volume Catton covers 1860 and 1861 from the Democratic Convention in Charleston and the Republican Convention in Chicago through Fort Sumpter and Manassas. The military aspects of the book most people will be familiar with but it was the political aspects of the origins of the Civil War that I found most interesting. The split within the Democratic Party is covered in depth as is the nomination process of Lincoln. And contrary to the politically correct thinking of today Slavery was the major cause of the Civil War. Catton does an outstanding job of proving this. The political powers of today attempt to down play this fact, after all, it was their Party that defended slavery and tore the country apart. The description of the siege of Fort Sumpter is is covered in detail as is the Battle of Manassas. This book was an outstanding beginning to the Trilogy, I recommend it.
