Last year several Civil War historians, including yours truly, collaborated on a volume edited by Ethan Rafuse that examined the performance of several Union corps commanders. I chose to write about Winfield Scott Hancock and the Overland Campaign, setting aside what some might see as the obvious choice of Hancock at Gettysburg, in part because at Gettysburg Hancock did not actually function as a corps commander. The Overland Campaign represented his first sustained experience as a corps commander. I was fortunate to be counted among a number of people who are distinguished Civil War historians in their own right.
Clearly some people thought the book was worth reading. Just take a look at what third party vendors want for it at Amazon:
Used, it can cost you even more:
By the way, the book retails for $45, and costs less on Amazon.
