James Pula, Under the Crescent Moon with the XI Corps in the Civil War, Volume 2, 1st ed.
In-Depth Evaluation of the “Dutch” Corps at Gettysburg!
James S. Pula’s Under the Crescent Moon with the XI Corps in the Civil War. Volume 2: From Gettysburg to Victory, 1863-1865, picks up the story of the “Damn Dutch” corps of the Union army after the disaster at Chancellorsville, and takes them to Gettysburg and beyond.
The twin disasters that befell the XI Corps at Chancellorsville and Gettysburg have cast a long shadow over the memory of the brave men who served and suffered in that unit.
James Pula focuses on the decisions of commanders and on the experience of common soldiers in telling a more fulsome tale. Focusing on Chancellorsville and Gettysburg gives a poor picture of the valor and skill of these soldiers, and detracts from their many successes, including a series of victories during the campaigns for Chattanooga and Knoxville.
These two volumes deserve to be an essential part of any collection on the Army of the Potomac or Gettysburg.
