The focus of this book is on American military campaigns from the American Indian Wars to the War in the Gulf. Case studies are used to illustrate the strategy behind land, sea, and air campaigns. Over a fifth of the book examines the U.S. war against Japan because it furnishes such fine examples of independent and interdependent operations on land, on the sea, and in the air. This work will appeal to military professionals, students of military science, and enthusiasts

Confederate strategy from Shiloh to Vicksburg by Archer Jones( Book )

14 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Starting with a brief review of general strategic policies, North and South, the author traces the development of Confederate strategy between Shiloh and Vicksburg with care and skill. The author offers several interesting, new insights. George Wythe Randolph, second of the six men who served as Confederate Secretary of War, emerges as a far more influential policymaker than was previously thought. Combing the official records and scattered Randolph letters in various manuscript collections, the author skillfully employs both positive and negative evidence to suggest that Randolph was by no means "Jefferson Davis's clerk"; the Secretary apparently played a key role in the passage of the important Conscription Act of 1862 and in the partial unification of the western command under a single department just before his resignation in the fall of that year. Another insight comes from the entire Joseph E. Johnston-Jefferson Davis controversy which also takes on different dimensions for both. Davis was far more flexible in dealing with problems of troop disposition and defensive strategy. Johnston was far more active and resourceful as departmental commanded. The author concludes with an account of the crisis in strategic planning of the spring of 1863. At this time, the relative merits of action in the East and West are debated, strongly influenced by Johnston's trusteeship in the West

Why the Confederacy lost by G. S Boritt( Book )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After the Civil War, someone asked General Pickett why the Battle of Gettysburg had been lost: Was it Lee's error in taking the offensive, the tardiness of Ewell and Early, or Longstreet's hesitation in attacking? Pickett scratched his head and replied, "I've always thought the Yankees had something to do with it." This simple fact, writes James McPherson, has escaped a generation of historians who have looked to faulty morale, population, economics, and dissent as the causes of Confederate failure. These were all factors, he writes, but the Civil War was still a war--won by the Union army through key victories at key moments. With this brilliant review of how historians have explained the Southern defeat, McPherson opens a fascinating account by several leading historians of how the Union broke the Confederate rebellion. In every chapter, the military struggle takes center stage, as the authors reveal how battlefield decisions shaped the very forces that many scholars (putting the cart before the horse) claim determined the outcome of the war. Archer Jones examines the strategy of the two sides, showing how each had to match its military planning to political necessity. Lee raided north of the Potomac with one eye on European recognition and the other on Northern public opinion--but his inevitable retreats looked like failure to the Southern public. The North, however, developed a strategy of deep raids that was extremely effective because it served a valuable political as well as military purpose, shattering Southern morale by tearing up the interior. Gary Gallagher takes a hard look at the role of generals, narrowing his focus to the crucial triumvirate of Lee, Grant, and Sherman, who towered above the others. Lee's aggressiveness may have been costly, but he well knew the political impact of his spectacular victories; Grant and Sherman, meanwhile, were the first Union generals to fully harness Northern resources and carry out coordinated campaigns. Reid Mitchell shows how the Union's advantage in numbers was enhanced by a dedication and perseverance of federal troops that was not matched by the Confederates after their home front began to collapse. And Joseph Glatthaar examines black troops, whose role is entering the realm of national myth. In 1960, there appeared a collection of essays by major historians, entitled Why the North Won the Civil War, edited by David Donald; it is now in its twenty-sixth printing, having sold well over 100,000 copies. Why the Confederacy Lost provides a parallel volume, written by today's leading authorities. Provocatively argued and engagingly written, this work reminds us that the hard-won triumph of the North was far from inevitable. - Publisher
