    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2014; US$ 35.00

    Lincoln's most controversial generals--his so-called "political generals"--were appointed, promoted or kept in service for political purposes without regard for their competence.

The results were catastrophic: nearly a quarter of the men were killed or wounded,... more...

    LSU Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    The outcomes of campaigns in the Civil War often depended on top generals having the right corps commanders in the right place at the right time.

    In recent years, the intersection of religion and the American Civil War has been the focus of a growing area of scholarship.

    Savas Beatie 2014; US$ 14.99

  • “The Devil’s to Pay”by Eric J. Wittenberg

    Savas Beatie 2014; US$ 19.95

    Although many books on Gettysburg have addressed the role played by Brig. Gen. John Buford and his First Cavalry Division troops, there is not a single book-length study devoted entirely to the critical delaying actions waged by Buford and his dismounted troopers and his horse artillerists on the morning of July 1, 1863. Award-winning Civil War historian... more...
