About this item

Studies of the US Civil War tend to focus on battle and campaigns at the expense of high command and strategy, says Green. He looks at the Union high command through the lens of General McClellan, and with a focus on the Union's main army the Army of the Potomac, and finds that the Union lacked the high command that could have designed and implemented the Union's war aims, the military strategy, and operations during the first two years of the war. This helps explain why the war lasted longer that it might have, he says, and why the Union did not achieve victory a lot earlier than it did.
