Description

From the opening salvos at Fort Sumter to the final surrender at the Appomattox Courthouse, Walter Geer’s classic work provides a penetrating study of the military course of the Civil War from the vantage points of both sides in the conflict. With careful attention to topography, fortifications and disposition of forces and the character of the fighting men and their commanders, he identifies the key features of each battle that were to determine victory or defeat. Of particular interest are his unsparing judgments of the successes and failures of generalship in both camps.

Campaigns of the Civil War provides detailed descriptions of every major battle and extended engagement. Among the campaigns covered are First and Second Manassas, Shiloh, the Peninsula, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Chattanooga and the March to Atlanta.

Geer’s was the first successful historical analysis of both the tactical and strategic decisions that shaped the conduct and final outcome of the war and his work has been cited as ground breaking by generations of historians since its first publication in 1926.
