Elements of military strategy : an historical approach by Archer Jones( )

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 )

13 editions published between 1958 and 1991 in English and held by 738 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

12 editions published between 1998 and 2006 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gabor S. Boritt, Director of the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College, brings together five Civil War historians to reveal how battlefield decisions shaped the very forces -- social, economic, and political -- that many scholars claim determined the outcome of the war. James McPherson argues that the Civil War was won by the Union army through key victories at key moments. Archer Jones examines the strategy of the two sides, concluding that neither got the better of the other, and shows how each had to match its military planning to political necessity. Gary Gallagher assesses the role of the dominant generals -- Lee, Grant, and Sherman -- explaining how they towered above the others and how their roles shaped the war. 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 attends to the critical contribution of African Americans, placing that "at the heart of the Civil War."

The art of war in the Western world by Archer Jones( Recording )

1 edition published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This book] is not a traditional history of war. Its purpose is to trace and explain, at an introductory and somewhat advanced level, the changes in certain operational variables over most of the span of Western warfare for which we have a record. These constitute the themes of the work, which thus contains more emphasis on explication than is usual in a narrative history ... This book has a narrow foucs: it considers only selected operational variables, omitting all noncognitive aspects of such history and leaving virtually all of the affective domain of warfare, such as morale and motivation, to such experts as John Keegan in history and Morris Janowitz in sociology. It ignores not only most political factors but also the new military history of the environment of armed forces. It defines strategy narrowly, deleting most grand strategy and the integration of political, economic, military, and naval ends and means. This results in understating the strategic role of seapower, leaving most of its treatment separate and to an approach analogous to that used for presenting warfare on land.-Introd
