Description

From the best-selling author of Gettysburg, a multilayered group biography of the commanders who led the Army of the Potomac The high command of the Army of the Potomac was a changeable, often dysfunctional band of brothers, going through the fires of war under seven commanding generals in three years, until Grant came east in 1864. The men in charge all too frequently appeared to be fighting against the administration in Washington instead of for it, increasingly cast as political pawns facing down a vindictive congressional Committee on the Conduct of the War. President Lincoln oversaw, argued with, and finally tamed his unruly team of generals as the eastern army was stabilized by an unsung supporting cast of corps, division, and brigade generals. With characteristic style and insight, Stephen Sears brings these courageous, determined officers, who rose through the ranks and led from the front, to life.

Professional reviews

"George Guidall is the consummate professional in the performance of this extremely long production. Sears's work focuses on the so often dysfunctional leadership of the main Federal Army in the eastern theater of the Civil War, known as the Army of the Potomac. In describing what happened between Washington and Richmond during the Civil War from the federal side, Sears focuses on the Army's high commanders and subordinate Corps commanders, sometimes going down to division and brigade level and, very rarely, regimental level. Guidall is superb; his resonant baritone is clear, perfectly expressive, and nuanced. He enhances this long work with a capable reading. M.T.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
