For the Confederates, who invested such hope and so many resources, the disaster at Chattanooga would be a dark chapter, as veteran troops broke and ran before the Federal onslaught. It was a body blow from which the Army of Tennessee, and indeed the Confederacy, would never recover.

Woodworth whitewashes Sherman's and Grant's performance, dismisses Hooker's attack on Bragg's left on Missionary Ridge with 6 lines. Woodworth has probably never visited the battle site, and he certainly did not make use of the Stewart's Division's reports, now available in the Broadfoot Supplements. He could have profited from a more careful reading of the two most recent serious books on the battle by Cozzens and Sword.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
