In this "nuts and bolts" comparative history of Union and Confederate command and strategy, the eminent prize-winning historian Archer Jones shows us how the Civil War was actually conducted. Looking at decision-making at the highest levels, from mobilization and organization to planning and operation, Jones argues that Presidents Lincoln and Davis and most of their senior generals brought to the context of the Civil War a broad grasp of established military strategy and its historical applications, as well as the ability to make significant strategic innovations.
