Unmatched in its description of the battle's tactics and actual fighting.--Ethan Rafuse, author of McClellan's War

On July 21, 1861, near a Virginia railroad junction twenty-five miles from Washington, DC, the Union and Confederate armies clashed in the first major battle of the Civil War. This revised edition of Hennessy's classic is the premier tactical account of First Manassas/Bull Run.

  • Combines narrative, analysis, and interpretation into a clear, easy-to-follow account of the battle's unfolding
  • Features commanders who would later become legendary, such as William T. Sherman and Thomas J. Jackson, who earned his "Stonewall" nickname at First Manassas
  • "synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.

    Review:

    "If you're into First Bull Run (or even if you're not, particularly), this is a must have. In my opinion, if you only have one First Bull Run book, this is the one you should have." (Bull Runnings 2015-12-03)
