Novelist Jeff Shaara appeared on C-SPAN II’s “In Depth” for a 3-hour interview on his historical fiction novels. While his Civil War history would have been accurate in the 1970s or earlier, current scholarship has changed our understanding of many of the points he makes in the interview, and has exploded some myths he still holds. Still, it’s a decent interview.
The video’s description reads, “We continued our 2018 Fiction Edition of In Depth with military historical fiction author, Jeff Shaara. Mr. Shaara’s 15 novels tell the military history of America from the American Revolution to the Korean War.”
