This volume is dominated by the almost continual confrontation of great armies. The Army of the Potomac under Burnside attempts once again to take Richmond, resulting in the bloodbath at Fredericksburg. Then Joe Hooker tries again, only to be repulsed at Chancellorsville as Stonewall Jackson turns his flank a bitter victory for the South, paid for by the death of Lees foremost lieutenant. In the west, Grants seven relentless efforts against Vicksburg show Lincoln that he has at last found the killer-general, the man who can face the arithmetic. With Vicksburg finally under siege, Lee again invades the North. The three-day conflict at Gettysburg receives book-length attention in a masterly treatment of a key great battle, not as legend has it, but as it really was, before it became distorted by controversy and overblown by remembered glory.
