George C. Rable, Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg! 1st Ed.
Modern Military History at its Best!
George Rable’s Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg! combines military, social, and political history unlike any previous book.
Rable understood that few Civil War battles offered opportunities to explore the larger effects of a single engagement than the December 13, 1862, tragedy that occurred outside Fredericksburg, Virginia. From the bloody and hopeless attack at Marye’s Heights to the Abraham Lincoln’s despair in the White House, this battle affected the whole nation.
A perfect example of the best kind of work in the field that has come to be known as “New Military History.”
Very good plus; in dust jacket; signed on bookplate.
Rable, George C. Fredericksburg! Fredericksburg! Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2002. 1st edition, 671p., maps, illustrations.
