American Civil War Commanders by Philip Katcher
Book DescriptionThe American Civil War was one of the last wars in which generals often led from the front, risking death at the head of their troops. It was a war of larger-than-life characters, generals who earned colourful reputations and strong opions among their soldiers and colleagues. This book outlines the careers and characters - and illustrates the appearance, in their authentic uniforms - of famous Union commanders who fought in the eastern theatre of operations, including Barlow, Custer, Sickles, Chamberlain, Couch and nearly 20 more.
