5.0 out of 5 starsAn outstanding read!
Reviewed in the United States on September 26, 2003
Mr. Furgurson brought to life the many participants of this great battle, General Lee's greatest victory. His description of the battlefield & the flow of the battle is outstanding. Having visited the battlefield, I was able to really "picture" the movements of the troops. Anyone that is a great fan, as I am, of General Stonewall Jackson will find this book really worth having. I am very happy to have added it to my library.
5.0 out of 5 starsTerrific book on Chancellorsville!
Reviewed in the United States on March 20, 2003
This is a well written, comprehensive overview of the battle of Chancellorsville. The author has created a well balanced book that provides insight at both the strategic and tactical levels. His use of first person source material brings the battle to life and makes for compelling reading. I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in the Civil War and this battle in particular.
A well-written study of an important battle of the War Between the States. Highly detailed, with the results of some useful new research. Seems objective and balanced; certainly not a panegyric of Lee or Jackson.
