Ness and deadly ineffectuality that would haunt the Army of the Potomac until Grant came along and started swinging it like a sledgehammer It was a hard luck army an immensely powerful industrial juggernaut steered in its early years by bumblers and sleepwalkers and lightweight braggarts baffled on the oad to victory constantly unning off into the ditch I m deep into Glory Road the second volume of the trilogy and there are fumbled battles cheap hotels les po tes maudits les soldats maudits Catton uotes countless letters home that describe the army s malaise but none of their writers elouent as they so often are captures the mood of helpless nightmare uite like the German soldier turned anarchist playwright Ernst Toller who ecalled World War One thus We were all of us cogs in a great machine which sometimes Ola Shakes It Up rolled forward nobody knew where sometimes backwards nobody knew why Didn t like this one as much as Shelby Foote s epic trilogy but still very good Many years ago my mother belonged to a monthly book club of some kind Among the other cheap pulp paper editions she got were a complete Sherlock Holmes and Bruce Catton s Army of the Potomac consisting of Mr Lincoln s Army Glory Road and A Stillness at Appomattox I think she got them because she thought they would interest me These books have almost obsessed me ever sinceAs its name suggests this trilogy follows the fortunes and mostly misfortunes of the Union s Army of the Potomac the main Union army that slogged it out with the South s Army of Northern Virginia in most of the famous battles of the Civil War Mr Lincoln s Army covers the early months of the war when the Army was under the command of the heartbreaking General George McClellan a brilliant soldier trainer and tactician McClellan came so close but in the end he lacked that killer instinct that would let him push just a little harder and go forward to victory Because he didn t have that killer streak the war went on for years He made theaw ecruits under his command into a great and professional army His soldiers loved him for it but in the end they outgrew him This is the story of how they did it Well i just loved this book not because it seems to be the definitive work on the civil war a great bibliography superb footnotes and fantastic anecdotes but this kind of stuff is just eally fascinating to me I think for its time 1950 s it is very well Einatmen, Ausatmen researched and justeally compacted with elevant data and story lines Caton follows the Army of the potomac from the end of the first battle at Manasses to the end of Antietem and McClellans endAntietem was just a disparaging succession of missed opportunities Catton has a flair for understatement I did have to ead this book with an Atlas but that s the way it isI can t wait for Volumes II and III to find out who wins This was my treadmill book isI can t wait for Volumes II and III to find out who wins This was my treadmill book the last few weeks Catton did a good job describing the battles and the generals and the opportunities missed and bungled for the northern army He seems to have great insight or should we say hindsight into what could have been Its narrative style high points came when he offered his own insights to the war and the hearts of the men who fought it.
