The American Civil War had been raging since 1861. In the eastern theatre of the war, the Confederate forces - under the brilliant leadership of Robert E. Lee - traded blows with a succession of Union commanders and inflicted some severe losses on his enemy. In the period covered by the book—1963—the next commander, to try to wrest the initiative from the Confederates and utilise the numerical superiority of the Union forces, was Maj.-General Hooker. His attempt would founder catastrophically at the battle of Chancellorsville, which in turn might be described as General Lee’s most famous victory. The high-water mark of the Confederate successes was to be at the battle of Gettysburg, with the Union forces under new commander General Meade holding their own and finally gaining the initiative.

Although a short book, it is a revealing look at the campaign from an “out-side” point of view free from partisan bias.

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 principally intended for use by British officers seeking a wider knowledge of military history.
