    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBExcellent in depth look at the Northern portion of the Atlanta CampaignThis is an excellent in depth history of Sherman's Atlanta Campaign from Tunnel Hill to the Chattahoochie River The only drawback is the vagueness of the maps in the book Using online maps will give the reader an excellent understanding of the entire Northern Georgia portion of the campaign

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBA detailed analysis of a key campaign of the war Hess does not disappoint with this installment I had read several of his other works and this book was one of the better ones Hess keeps the writing clear and concise and this book is good for the general reader or the devoted history buff

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBNot a bad history of the battles surrounding Kennesaw Mountain but it considerable detail Sometimes I felt I was slogging along with the soldiers As someone who lives one mile from the battlefield park and drives all the roads freuently I had only two problems with the book One was that the it wasn't eually balanced between the federals under Sherman and the confederates under Johnston As I was reading I was aware of a bias towards the stories and sketches toward the federal movements and that might have been as a result of written history since it is well known that the GAR controlled much of what was published about the Civil War for many years to the victor goes the right to write the history A uick check of the index bears this out as Johnston was mentioned on only 34

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBI enjoyed this book Mr Hess set out to write a history of the battle trying to objectively show both sides of the story For the most part I find that Mr Hess was able to accomplish his goal Before reading the book I had little knowledge of the battle I knew that Sherman threw his army at Johnston's lines and was repulsed and that is all After reading the book I now know that the battle was basically a reconnaissance in force; and a bloody one

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBIf you're only going to read 1 book about the battles around Johnston's Kennesaw Mountain line this is the one to choose He objectively discusses the placement of the Confederate fortifications in great detail faulty tactics on both sides Hood failed to do any reconnaisance before he attacked at Kolb's Farm and was soundly defeated; the main Union assault on 627 used columns of troops instead of lines of battle successful Union fl

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBGood but not great book I generally enjoy Earl J Hess' writing but this was weakest book of his that I have read I have readown three of his other books one he co authored It felt either rushed or that he cobbled the book together from other notes that he had from other projects Still it was enjoyable and needed Not enough has been written ab

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBA pretty solid history of this Civil War battle that breaks little new ground but unsurprisingly considering the author's previous works emphasizes the role of fieldworks I usually don't read standard battle histories for my personal or professional development b


  8. Paul Miller Paul Miller says:

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBBeing a Civil war guy and living in the Atlanta area I was obligated to pick this guy up If I regularly use 'abatis' in your conversation about the Civil War you'll 'get' this book If you don't me but you're willing to spend a little time on what battle tactics REALLY were like give this guy a go The gist of the battle is simple enough the scale narrow enough you get a decent feel for things The text would be better served by a Civil War Tactics for Dummies appendix

    Kennesaw Mountain ePUB Ì Hardcover kennesaw ebok, mountain download, Kennesaw Mountain PDFEPUBKennesaw Mountain is a very readable account of Sherman's campaign towards Atlanta and the battle at Kennesaw Mountain One improvement would be to show the battle lines on the maps instead of just terrain features Otherwise it is a good addition to the American Civil War library There are exxtensive notations from many references
