"Steven Woodwofth's expertise on the Western Theater of war comes though in this overview of the Battles for Chattanooga, 1863. There is a full set of maps and leading figure biographies that add much depth and interest. Moreover, Woodworth offers critical analysis of the strategic, tactical and political forces at play during this campaign and is not shy with assessment of error or praise where appropriate. This book is an excellent starting point for the Battles for Chattanooga and one that is also an enjoyable read at the same time."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
