Sets a new standard for campaign study. The quality of research is impeccable and the methodology most impressive. There is abundant evidence that the authors are intimately familiar with the sites and terrain about which they write, and that is a fine thing for those who would do first-rate battle history, as this book indeed is.Herman M. Hattaway, University of Missouri-Kansas City
