Great Campaigns The Shiloh Campaign Jacksonรขs Valley Campaign by David G. Martin ร‚ Both hard cover books are in Very Good condition. No writing, torn or folded pages. Spines and cover boards are clean and straight, bindings are tight, minor bumps to corners. Dust jackets have reading and rub wear. The Shiloh Campaign: The battle of Shiloh on April 6-7, 1862, was the biggest battle of the Civil War up to that date. Confederate General A.S. Johnston's daring surprise attack failed and cost him his life. The gallant stand of the then-unknown Union General Ulysses S. Grant created a new national hero and was the turning point in the career of the Civil war's eventually victor. The Shiloh Campaign provides a moment-by-moment account of the battle at the level of the individual soldier, but also examines the grand tactics of the Civil War's Western theater and problems at the highest level of leadership on both sides. Grant's uneasy relationship with his then commander Henry Halleck is described, as well as Grant's and Sherman's very modern-sounding problems with the press. David G. Martin's The Shiloh Campaign provides the most accurate order of battle available. A special "Leaders" section profile 33 major personalities of the battle and the book's "Campaign" format shows the relationship of Shiloh to previous engagements at Fort Donelson and Island No. 10, and the opening up of the decisive Western Theater of the Civil War. On the Confederate side, Martin describes the unique concentration of Mississippi and Gulf Coast garrisons that gave Johnston his strike force for the attack on Grant's camp at Shiloh. Also featured is an in-depth examination of General Beauregard's controversial role in the campaign, and his relationship with other Confederate generals. A unique "Sharing the Blame" section explores the tactical successes and failures of both sides. A combination of contemporary and specially commissioned maps add clarity to the river campaigns against Forts Henry and Donelson and Island No. 10, and the final conflict at Shiloh. The battle of Shiloh showed all America how bloody and serious a conflict the Civil War really was. The closely fought battle was long and intense and proved to both sides that the war was a serious affair and would not be decided quickly. Jacksonรขs Valley Campaign: In a few short months in the Shenandoah Valley, Stonewall Jackson rewrote military history. Accompanied by George Patton's great-uncle and a staff of able subordinates, the Bible-quoting general used his own unique view of past military doctrine to defeat a series of converging enemy armies. American military strategy has never been the same since. Jackson's aggressive personality enabled him to constantly maintain the initiative. While cloaking his own operations in tight security, he was often able to discern the aims of his opponent. Frequently outnumbered, he managed to keep enemy units separated, and to defeat them in detail. Jackson was able to coordinate infantry, cavalry, and artillery operations, and was particularly successful in turning the normally slow-moving infantry into an effective mobile strike force. Jackson's Valley Campaign is supplemented by sidebars on famous units, weapons, incidents, and in-depth personality profiles of Jackson and his opponents. Complete orders of battle and special maps that clearly illustrate Jackson's operational doctrine are enhanced by unique charts that show the distances and rates of march of Jackson's "foot cavalry" between all major points in the Shenandoah Valley.
