West of the Bridge; South of the Mason-Dixon Line
A short but highly detailed examination of the fight for 'Burnside's Bridge.' This is the best single volume on a narrow but interesting topic. The scholarship is excellent. The author portrays the fight from a Confederate perspective, per the title. Others (like me) may question his praise of 'General' Toombs, and his analogy to Thermopylae. Nevertheless, the 'southern exposure' is interesting even for Yankee readers. More (and more detailed) maps would have been helpful.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
