Description

John Bigelow’s The Campaign of Chancellorsville has been called “A masterful study – one of the very finest ever written on an American campaign; thoroughly documented and notably impartial.” – Civil War Books by Nevins, Robertson and Wiley.

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.

Quite scarce in the original first edition.

Bigelow, John, Jr. THE CAMPAIGN OF CHANCELLORSVILLE: A STRATEGIC AND TACTICAL STUDY. New Haven: 1910. Original 1st edition of 1000 copies (#149), 528p., maps, plans, folding maps, errata. Minimal shelf wear, and light soiling of text; else in very good condition as are all maps.
