American Civil War Commanders Summary

American Civil War Commanders: Pt.4: Confederate Leaders in the West by Philip Katcher

The American Civil War was one of the last wars in which generals often led from the front, risking death at the head of their men. It was a war of larger-than-life characters, generals who earned colourful reputations and strong opinions among their soldiers and colleagues. This book outlines the careers and characters - and illustrates the appearance, in their authentic uniforms - of famous Confederate commanders who fought in the Western theatre of operations, including Beauregard, Johnston, Jackson, Cheatham and nearly 20 more.

American Civil War Commanders Reviews
