<< Woodworth's Jeff Davis and the Failure of the High
Command in the West, >>
Steven Woodworth is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. He's good.
Thomas Connelly, Archer Jones and Richard McMurry belong to the group who
believe that the CW was decided in the west and that too many historians are
dazzled by the Gettysburg glitter and Lee luster while ignoring where the
real deciding moments happened at Vicksburg, the Tullahoma campaign,
Chattanooga and from Atlanta to the sea. I think that all three are worth
reading if for no other reason than where they shine the spotlight.
