  • West Pointers and the Civil Warby Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh

    The University of North Carolina Press 2009; US$ 35.95

    Most Civil War generals were graduates of West Point, and many of them helped transform the U.S. Army from what was little better than an armed mob that performed poorly during the War of 1812 into the competent fighting force that won the Mexican War. Wayne Wei-siang Hsieh demonstrates how the "old army" transformed itself into a professional military... more...
