Osprey Elite 88 : American Civil War Commanders (2) : Confederate Leaders in the East

The generals who led the brigades, divisions, corps and armies of the Confederacy were very largely products of the same professional backgrounds as their opponents in Union blue - indeed, many of them were former West Point classmates and brother officers in the pre-war US Army, who had served together on the frontier or in the Mexican War. In terms of field experience they were also similar to the vast majority of Union commanders - none of them had ever commanded so much as a brigade before 1861, and they had to learn by trial and error. Some whose pre-war record had promised much were to fail the test of war; some more obscure officers were to rise to the challenge remarkably. This book describes the careers, and illustrates the appearance on the battlefield, of some 25 famous Confederate generals who made their names mainly with the Army of Northern Virginia in the Eastern theatre of war. Text by Philip Katcher with illustrations by Richard Hook.
