    Hardcover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 1874 1ed Confederate General Joseph E Johnston Civil War Narrative CSA Military Joseph E. Johnston was a 19th-century American Army officer who served as a Confederate States Army general, even though he trained at West Point. However, his military acumen was wrecked and constantly criticized by Confederate President Jefferson Davis with whom Johnston was very displeased. Following his service time as a military officer, Johnston wrote and published his own memoirs memoirs which were mostly attacks on President Davis and other officers, as well as defending his own actions and decisions during the Civil War. In Tall Cotton says of this work: A vigorous defense of his own actions and necessarily, therefore, a hard-hitting attack on others, particularly on President Davis against whom he records his objections to excess. According to Nevins, this work is one of the earliest Confederate reminiscences; strongly partisan, anti-Davis, and defensive in tone. Per Eicher, This is one of the early classic narratives by a senior commanding general of the Confederate armies. Bitterly partisan and constructed to attack the credibility of charges brought against him The estimates of troops are way off he sometimes confuses events, as with several incidents in the Vicksburg campaign.

    Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. Thick octavo, publisher's original deluxe brown sheepskin with morocco spine label, marbled endpapers and edges. Octavo. [1], 602 pages, [6] pages of publisher advertisements, [1]. Frontispiece steel engraving of Johnston. Illustrated with steel engravings and a folding map. Professionally and sympathetically rebacked with the original spine by the Heritage Bindery. Internal contents clean with occasional light foxing. A very good copy of a scarce issue of this work. Often criticized for a perceived lack of aggressiveness, J.E. Johnston is still seen as one of most controversial Confederate military figures. He assumed command immediately following secession and continued in one capacity or another until the very end, when he surrendered to Sherman in April 1865. It was Johnston who recommended a fighting withdrawal against Sherman during his infamous March to the Sea. The Confederacy's refusal to implement this strategy led to John Bell Hood's disastrous defeat at Atlanta. Eicher 257. In Tall Cotton 101. Howes J 167; Nevins II page 68 "One of the earliest Confederate Reminiscences; strongly partisan, anti-Davis, and Defensive in tone. Very uncommon in the deluxe publisher s sheepskin.
