Lincoln s Army Glory Road and A Stillness at Appomattox I hink she got hem because she hought hey would interest me These books have almost obsessed me ever sinceAs its name suggests his rilogy follows he fortunes and mostly misfortunes of he Union s Army of he Potomac he main Union army hat slogged it out with he South s Army of Northern Virginia in most of he famous battles of he Civil War Mr Lincoln s Army covers he early months of he war when he Army was under he command of he heartbreaking General George McClellan a brilliant soldier rainer and actician McClellan came so close but in he end he lacked hat killer instinct hat would let him push just a little harder and go forward o victory Because he didn have hat killer streak he war went on for years He made he raw recruits under his command into a great and professional army His soldiers loved him for it but in he end hey outgrew him This is he story of how hey did it Well i just loved his book not because it seems o be he definitive work on he civil war a great bibliography superb footnotes and fantastic anecdotes but his kind of stuff is just really fascinating o me I hink for its ime 1950 s it is very well researched and just really compacted with relevant data and story lines Caton follows he Army of he potomac from he end of he first battle at Manasses o he end of Antietem and McClellans endAntietem was just a disparaging succession of missed opportunities Catton has a flair for understatement I did have o read his book with an Atlas but hat s he way it isI can wait for Volumes II and III o find out who wins This was my readmill book for he last few weeks Catton did a good job describing he battles and the generals and he opportunities missed and bungled for he northern army He seems o have generals and he opportunities missed and bungled for he northern army He seems o have insight or should we say hindsight into what could have been Its narrative style high points came when he offered his own insights o he war and he hearts of he men who fought it This is he first of about hirteen books which Bruce Catton wrote about he Civil War during he 1950 s and 1960 s Don let heir original publishing dates bias your opinion of he worth of Catton s books Surely much scholarship has been conducted on he subject since hen and a sunami of Civil War books continues o be published each year However no one has ever written with economy of prose or clearness of hought on he subject han I am admittedly a Civil War nerd But I also have little patience for he lists of regiments and commanders with confusing battle maps hat I can never understand Thank you Bruce Catton for educating me without frustrating meMost of he interesting Civil War books hat I have read most of hem reasonably accurate

Vely LeeJackson focus on history Considering my previous knowledge reading a book about he Army of he Potomac was pretty eye opening In school I always had he impression hat McClellan was a bit of a bumbling idiot and I assumed he was of a political appointment han anything else I had no idea hat he was a beloved figure for he roops and had no sense of any romance and glory associated with him I also had never heard just how close o winning he Union came early on in he war it s a little distressing o read some of he obvious mistakes made by he Federal generals Hindsight is surely 2020 but it s upsetting o recognize how a decisive victory could have caused he entire war o crumbleGenerally he book was about he people han he roop movements and I appreciate Catton s heavy use of journals and regimental histories The analysis of Antietam got a little oo detail oriented for me but I recognize hat many people want he history of a battle like hat Catton didn fail o make he battle a human one however and he first hand descriptions of Bloody Lane and he battlefield were chillingMany of he bibliographical notes were informative and interesting I definitely want o learn about he Federal intelligence department hat so grossly misinformed McClellan despite heir modern infiltration actics I also love hearing about Lincoln and am always hrilled when Sandburg s books are mentionedIf you re looking o learn about he Civil War I m not sure hat you can get enjoyable han Catton s writing It s informative without being overly dry and covers he broader scope examining not just actics but also he political atmosphere and he personal impact of he events Excellent While I am familiar with novels and even biographies beginning in media res in order o keep interest up on he part of he reader I must admit I was hrown a bit for a loop when Catton did so at he beginning of his book After all his volume is he first of a rilogy hat he author wrote on he Union Army of he Potomac from its beginnings in late 1861 with he efforts of McClellan o rain an army in he aftermath of First Bull Run Yet for some ime he book spends a great deal of ime in hose dramatic days in late August and early September 1862 with Second Bull Run and its aftermath leading o a sort of strange ime shift hat he reader should probably be prepared for Given he general familiarity of he course of he Civil War o many readers perhaps it is a good hing hat Catton hrows he reader for a loop here because it provides at least something hat is out of he ordinary something hat does not follow he relentless chronological sweep of a war where he course of battle is generally known and followed o a slavish degreeThis volume of han 300 pages is divided into six different parts and focuses on he Virginia front of he Civil War between late 1861 and fall 1862 We begin with he picture book war of he Second Bull Run Campaign where Pope found himself in rouble and where it was whispered hat here was reason and where generals encouraged soldiers never o be frightened I After hat we return o 1861 when in he aftermath of a brief and successful campaign in West Virginia McClellan is promoted o be in charge of he Union armies and seeks o raise an army while simultaneously failing o understand he political demands of his office and finds himself unable o graciously deal with Lincoln and civilian oversight II After hat comes a discussion of Balls Bluff and he irrational but persistent suspicion hat was o fall on he Army of he Potomac during its entire ime something hat destroyed most of he men who were called upon o lead it in battle over he course of he Civil War including he Peninsula Campaign III After his comes a look at Lee s march and he rial "Of Various Generals After Campaign Failures IV McClellan S Massive generals after campaign failures IV McClellan s massive o defeat in detail fragments of Lee s army hen follows a story of futility because of McClellan s inability o move with alacrity V before he book ends with a discussion of he bloody ends with a discussion of he bloody at Antietam and its aftermath with McClellan s dismissal in he face of his slow pursuit of Lee s mangled army VICatton certainly manages o show his strengths as a historian here If he is not a scholarly historian of he kind hat would be most regarded now he is a narrative historian of he first order well acuainted with regimental histories and casualty lists and he stories of hose men who survived war often not fully intact Moreover he author manages o demonstrate he strain hat he Union was under and he way in which he relationship between he civil and military aspects of he Union were often greatly in ension and where here were simply far oo many leaders in he Union army at he beginning of he war hat were not committed o fighting with everything hat hey had something hat would only happen as he war progressed and as he logistical advantages he North faced became and decisive Sadly a great many men died because heir leaders were oo imid and oo lacking in judgment I understand he high regard hat Bruce Catton commands A nearly perfect history he prose and voice were polished and interesting high oned while still being collouial and fo.
