I'm a huge fan of historical novelist Jeff Shaara. I've read and thoroughly enjoyed all his books. His best were, I think, Gone for Soldiers (Mexican War) and his two-part look at the American Revolution (Rise to Rebellion and Glorious Cause). However, ALL of them have been excellent!

I've just picked up his latest, The Rising Tide, and I'm salivating to start reading it.

Would be interested in comments you all have about Shaara, especially if you've started reading (or even finished reading) his latest, The Rising Tide.
