Bigelow, John. The Campaign of Chancellorsville: A Strategic Tactical Study
Possibly the Finest Military History in American Literature
Hours: Tues - Sat
John Bigelow’s The Campaign of Chancellorsville A Strategic and Tactical Study.
Historians have called this the finest military history in American letters. Literally true or not, it does provide unparalleled research and insight into General Lee’s greatest battle and remains a landmark for any historian attempting a battle study. It became an exemplar in West Point classrooms as how to view and write about a battle.
“A masterful study – one of the very finest ever written on an American campaign; thoroughly documented and notably impartial.” – Nevins, Civil War Books.
Quite scarce in the original first edition. This copy out of series; spine lightly sunned; light edge wear; light bump; lightly shaken; creased front end page; chipped rear end page; else very good, with all maps intact.
