From Our Editors

Author of The Battle of Seven Pines and Joseph E. Johnston and the Defence of Richmond, Dr. Steven H. Newton’s latest volume explores manpower attrition as a major factor in the collapse of the Confederate Army. Lost for the Cause: The Confederate Army in 1864 looks as the success of the Southern mobilzation for the Wilderness and Atlanta campaigns, the effect of looses as well as providing the first comprehensive order of battle for Confederate forces from the regimental to battery level, all enhanced by 13 photos and illustrations and two original and detailed maps.
