From the Publisher"On the afternoon of August 30, 1862, Robert E. Lee glimpsed an opportunity to destroy a Union army on the field of battle. Much is known about how James Longstreet’s men rolled over a gallant brigade of New York Zouaves and headed for the Union rear. What happened next is the subject of Scott Patchan’s fine study, based on an intimate familiarity with the sources and the ground over which men fought and died. Essential reading for anyone who wants to know more about Second Manassas."
“Scott Patchan has stepped into this historical morass armed with new sources, a detailed knowledge of the ground (absolutely indispensable when writing of a battle), and a fresh perspective. He has forged a monograph that clears much of the mud, sharpens the detail, and removes much of the guesswork involved in previous works dealing with the climactic clash at Second Manassas.”
