Rowland presents a framework in which early Civil War command can be viewed without direct comparison to that of the final two years. Only by understanding how very different were the context and nature of the war facing McClellan, as opposed to Grant and Sherman, can one discard the traditional 'good general - bad general' approach to command performance and view McClellan's career with a clearer perspective.
