Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Praise for the First Edition: "A delightful surprise. Daniel has made a significant contribution to our knowledge of Civil War history--no easy task. Major strengths of the book are the sources discovered and used by Daniel and his ability to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of the artillery as well as the way that it was used."--Grady McWhiney, author of Attack and Die: Civil War Military Tactics and the Southern Heritage

Priase for the first edition: "For Civil War enthusiasts who prefer the Western campaigns, for Southern partisans, academics, wargamers, or today's military personnel, this book should be must reading."--Blue & Gray
