Back cover copy

'The beginning student of Civil War military history will find the work an unmatched guide to how war was fought in the mid nineteenth century. Anyone already well versed in Civil War history will find immensely stimulating the authors' interpretations of Union and Confederate strategy, interpretations that will have to be grappled with by all subsequent historians of the subject.' -Russell F. Weigley, Indiana Magazine of History

Review quote

"Superb military history, analytic, comprehensive, discursive, controversial in the best sense, and always stimulating... One of the very best Civil War books to appear in the past quarter-century." -- Dudley T. Cornish, Military Affairs
