Opis produktu:

This is one of the first books in Gallagher's large series of essay books, and I consider it one of his best. This was published before he put in those essays which had nothing to do with the tactical or strategic aspect of the campaign, which I tend to generally read either reluctantly or not at all. As you can expect, I devoured every single essay in this one. I particularly enjoyed the essay on Howard's leadership from Chancellorsville to Gettysburg.

Instead of overstated positioning and endless biography, Civil War Historian Gary Gallagher and other noted historians have come together to offer their views on various leadership tactics involved during the first day of battle. Alan Nolan covers Confederate strategy and Lee's leadership role in the Pennsylvania campaign how certain maneuvers lead to dire consequences. Gary Gallagher offers his thoughts in the role of A.P. Hill and Richard Ewell and questions their leadership during the fighting. Could they have been more involved? Did they listen to Lee's orders? Was Ewell fairly treated in his reasons for not advancing further on the late afternoon of the 1st? Gallagher opens and answers these questions while prompting new insight.Wilson Green explores Union tactics and leadership involving Howard and the 11th Corp operations. Did Howard coordinate and properly lead this Corp at Gettysburg? Could disaster been avoided? Robert Krick brings to life the failure of Heth's approach in bringing in his weakest brigade, Iverson and Oneal's poor executions leading to disastrous failures along Oak Ridge. Finally, this book isn't for those just looking to understand the 1st Day, it is for those who have a higher knowledge of the the battle and are looking for answers in regards the above mentioned. Does it get in to all of the issues of the 1st Day? No. It does exactly what the cover says, it explores leadership on popular issues.
