    1. Cozzens again proves why, a few minor errors notwithstanding, he is one of the best. The experience of the foot soldiers is a thread throughout the work, which also details the plans and machinations of both high commands. Bragg was openly feuding with his senior commanders and Grant disliked Hooker, Thomas, and in particular Granger. This bickering, combined with the terrain and logistics, explains why this was the most unusual battle of the war. Attacking infantry managed to carry two imposing [...]

    2. A thorough, well-written and insightful history of the Chattanooga campaign, which Cozzens argues was the single most decisive campaign of the war.Cozzens does a great job describing the political and military context and the lead-up to the battle, as well as the aftermath. The narrative of the battle itself is vivid, energetic and detailed, and all of the tactical developments are clearly represented. The thumbnail biographies of all the major figures are insightful and don’t disrupt the flow [...]

    3. Chattanooga TN, was the site, in late fall of 1863, of a series of battles in the U.S. Civil War for not only the city but for the entryway to the inner South, the gateway to Georgia and the heartland of the Confederacy. Just as Lincoln was focused on the Eastern war and the Army of the Potomac, Jefferson Davis was obsessed with what was happening in Virginia and with Lee s Army of Northern Virginia. But unlike Davis, Lincoln never lost sight of the strategic importance of the West; Lincoln cons [...]

    4. After the near disastrous Union defeat at Chickamauga, the northern forces retreated to Chattanooga. Confederate troops encircled the city and held key heights. This book examines the situation from the beginning of the siege to the final Union victory.We get a taste of the key figures in the fighting, including the internecine warfare among Confederate generals, with the tension between James Longstreet and Braxton Bragg being a fine example. On the Union side, General Rosecrans, after his defe [...]

    5. Cozzens wraps up his Army of the Cumberland trilogy (preceded by books on Stones River and Chickamauga). Cozzens writing seems to subtly improve with each book, as I found this better than "No Better Place To Die" (about Chickamauga) and I've heard some negative reviews of his Stones River book. The campaign is covered extensively, from Rosecran's replacement through the opening of the Cracker Line, the battles on Lookout Mountain, Tunnel Hill, and Missionary Ridge and even a chapter about the p [...]

    6. Cozzen has produced the comprehensive tome on the battle of Chattanooga. All the information you need to understand the flow of battle as well as the political intriguing that helped to shape the results is here. What is mostly lacking is a spark of life, or a sense of being there. With a few exceptions, Cozzen's battle descriptions have more of the feel of a wargame played out on a map than the chaotic, life and death struggle that it surely was. For those who have an interest in the battle, yo [...]

    7. Clarity in writing and keen analysis throughout the work. Strategy and on-field tactics cleanly rendered for the reader. Author does a great job of showing how personalities and personal piques shaped the overall outcome of the events. Diligent research provides the reader with quotes from the average soldier at key situations in the ongoing battles and marches. You can get lost a bit in teh left-flank, right-flank stuff but that is probably more about me than the book.

    8. Great book on one of the least covered battles of the civil war. I read the book because I wanted to know about the battle before we visited it.
