Essence of command at Shiloh
Most military history stresses strategy and tactics at the expense of the characters of their subjects. Larry Tagg remedies that oversight with a unique look at the high-ranking officers whose conduct in April, 1862 helped determine the outcome of the war in the Civil War's Western Theater.
Modeled after Tagg's bestselling The Generals of Gettysburg, this new book offers a background of each commander, an account of his actions at Shiloh and, if he survived, his fate thereafter. Here are some of the war's great legends, among them William T. Sherman and P. G. T. Beauregard-along with many more whose names have vanished.
Tagg's melding of each man's character with his war record offers new insights into the course of this pivotal clash.
Praise for The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln
"An important book for anyone interested in Lincoln, the Civil War, or the presidency."-A.A. Nofi, The NYMAS Review
"This is a tour de force demonstration of writing, reading, and thinking. . . . Easily the Lincoln book of the Bicentennial of his birth and the best Lincoln tome I have seen in 15 years of compiling and reviewing Civil War book releases."-Dimitri Rotov, Civil War Bookshelf
"The Unpopular Mr. Lincoln is beautifully written, with an almost rhythmic cadence at times. . . . it deserves a lofty place in the pantheon of Lincoln literature."-Geoff Elliott, The Abraham Lincoln Blog
