      The cooperation between Bragg and Smith during the Kentucky campaign was horrible.  Much of blame rests with Kirby Smith as he did not want to be under Bragg's orders which created for Smith his own agenda (or plan).
      Granted, the cooperation was bad, but there was some consideration.  If not, Bragg would not have given Smith Cleburne and his division.   And yes, if the two forces moved in unison with a common goal, their mission might have been accomplished.
