IF WE ARE STRIKING FOR PENNSYLVANIA: The Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac March to Gettysburg – Volume 1: June 3-21, 1863

IF WE ARE STRIKING FOR PENNSYLVANIA: The Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac March to Gettysburg – Volume 1: June 3-21, 1863 First volume of a two-volume study of the opening moves of the Gettysburg Campaign, June 3-21, 1863. Integrates the military, media, political, social, economic,\ and civilian perspectives with rank-and-file accounts from the soldiers of both armies as they inexorably march toward their destiny at Gettysburg. The second volume covers June 22-30, 1863, and completes the march, carrying the armies to the eve of the fighting. Gen. Robert E. Lee began moving part of his Army of Northern Virginia towards Pennsylvania on June 3, 1863. He believed his army needed to win a major victory on Northern soil if the South was to have a chance at winning the war. Transferring the fighting out of war-torn Virginia would allow the state time to heal while he supplied his army from untapped farms and stores in Maryland and Pennsylvania. Lee had also convinced Pres. Jefferson Davis that his offensive would interfere with the Union effort to take Vicksburg in Mississippi. The bold movement would trigger extensive cavalry fighting and a major battle at Winchester before culminating in the bloody three-day battle at Gettysburg. $35.00 USD

IF WE ARE STRIKING FOR PENNSYLVANIA: The Army of Northern Virginia and the Army of the Potomac March to Gettysburg – Volume 2: June 22-30, 1863 The second volume covers June 22-30, 1863, and completes the march to Gettysburg. Details the actions and whereabouts of each component of the armies up to the eve of the fighting. The large-scale maneuvering in late June prompted General Hooker to move his Army of the Potomac north after his opponent and eventually above the Potomac, where he is removed from command and replaced by V Corps commander George G. Meade. Jeb Stuart begins his controversial and consequential ride that strips away the eyes and ears of the Virginia army. Throughout northern Virginia, central Maryland, and south-central Pennsylvania, civilians, politicians and soldiers alike struggle with the reality of a mobile campaign and the massive logistical needs of the armies. Includes 58 images and 22 maps. $35.00 USD

BATTALION COMMANDERS AT WAR: U.S. Army Tactical Leadership in the Mediterranean Theater, 1942-1943

BATTALION COMMANDERS AT WAR: U.S. Army Tactical Leadership in the Mediterranean Theater, 1942-1943 Examination of leadership portrays battalion officers as highly trained, adaptable, and courageous in their first combat experiences in North Africa and Sicily. Their leadership brought discipline, maturity, experience, and the ability to translate common operational guidance into tactical reality, and thus contributed significantly to battlefield success in North Africa and Sicily in 1942-1943. To explain how this happened, he examines their pre-war experiences, including professional military education and unit training exercises; personal factors such as calmness and physical resilience under fire; and the ability to draw upon doctrine, creatively apply the resources at their disposal, and clearly define and communicate mission goals and means. He also reveals how battalion leaders incorporated technological innovations into combined-arms maneuvers by employing tank capabilities and close-air-support doctrine. $45.00 USD

THE GI OFFENSIVE IN EUROPE: The Triumph of American Infantry Divisions Comprehensive study of America's infantry combat performance in Europe during World War II, showing that the Army succeeded by developing combat-effective divisions that could not only fight and win battles, but also sustain that effort over years of combat. While American industry admittedly enabled the U.S. to sustain its overseas armies, the effectiveness of those forces ultimately rested on their organizational capabilities and ability to adapt to combat in a variety of lethal environments and to learn from their mistakes. Analyzes the impact of personnel and logistical systems on the Army's strength, explaining how leaders used these systems to keep a small number of divisions at a high state of combat effectiveness. During the critical battles of 1944-45, American divisions were able to sustain this high level while their Wehrmacht counterparts disintegrated, demonstrating that the Army's endurance in extended combat was the most critical factor in its ultimate success. Also takes a close look at the personalities and capabilities of division commanders, infantry tactics and operations, logistics, and the benefits and weaknesses of stateside training. $25.00 USD

THE BULLETS FLEW LIKE HAIL: Cutler's Brigade at Gettysburg, from McPherson's Ridge to Culp's Hill Revised and updated edition describes the brigade's origins, its march to the field on the morning of July 1, 1863, and how it went into action piecemeal and vulnerable. Brig. Gen. Lysander Cutler arrived with his 1st Corps brigade of infantry just in time to relieve Buford's hard-pressed cavalry. Cutler's stubborn defense, together with the arrival of the famous Iron Brigade, stopped the Confederate advance long enough for other Union troops to reach the field. The desperate fighting that morning helped save the important high ground upon which the battle would be fought – and won – over the next two days. Includes photos and 24 maps. $35.00 USD

THEY CAME ONLY TO DIE: The Battle of Nashville, December 15-16, 1864 The November 1864 Battle of Franklin left the Army of Tennessee stunned. In only a few hours, the army lost 6,000 men and a score of generals. Rather than pause, John Bell Hood marched his army north to Nashville. He had risked everything on a successful campaign and saw his offensive as the Confederacy's last hope. But there was no question of attacking Nashville. The city was well fortified and the Federals outnumbered Hood more than two to one. But Hood knew he could force them to attack him and, in doing so, he could win a defensive victory that might rescue the Confederacy from the chasm of collapse. Includes 220+ images and eight maps. $17.00 USD
