About this title

Synopsis:

'Rowena Reed's "Combined Operations in the Civil War" not only continues to be the most thorough and competent examination of its topic but one of the most provocative and penetrating studies of Civil War strategy and tactics in general and the generalship of George McClellan in particular' - John D. Milligan. 'A splendid account of the Union combined operations during the Civil War, a book sorely needed...[Reed] stresses the planning of Army-Navy operations, their relation to Federal objectives, the effect of technological change, and the political factors influencing the employment of combined operations' - "Military Affairs".'To be carefully read and thought upon, not only for Civil War history but for the broader field of overall military and naval history' - "Civil War Times Illustrated". 'A rapidly moving account which embraces new insight into the Civil War...[Reed] possesses that rare ability ...to present a scholarly study, replete with facts and conclusions, in a thoroughly interesting manner' - "The Retired Officer". Rowena Reed was on the history faculty at Dartmouth College and the author, with Michael Mullins, of "A Union Bookshelf: Selected Civil War Bibliography". In his introduction John D. Milligan considers Reed's provocative thesis that General George B. McClellan's concept of a grand strategy would have ended the bloodshed sooner. A professor of history at State University of New York at Buffalo, he is the author of "Gunboats Down the Mississippi".
