Major Redway picks up his analysis of the actions in the Eastern theatre of the Civil War with his widely acclaimed book on the Fredericksburg campaign of 1862. Goaded by his political master Lincoln, Major-General Burnside assumed the offensive with the Union army in late 1862, planning to use speed and surprise to enable him to defeat the Confederate forces under Robert E. Lee. His plan started to fall apart almost immediately as he failed to move with the requisite speed and, faced with choices between vaciliation and bold action, assumed the former. What had started badly was to end disastrously for the Union forces at the Battle of Fredericksburg, as bloody frontal assaults were delivered against entrenched Confederate troops.
This book is part of the Special Campaigns series produced around the turn of the 20th century by serving or recently retired British and Indian Army officers. They were intended principally for use by British officers seeking a wider knowledge of military history.
Author — Major George William Redway (1859-1934)
