"... a major contribution to our knowledge of the place of the Civil War in the history of warfare.... I have long hoped for a sound history of Civil War military staffs...

"... this fine book deserves a place on the shelves of all military historians in this country and abroad." —American Historical Review

"... a first rate book... impressive... an imposing work... " —Journal of American History

"This book is filled with enlightening information.... ought to be a standard for many years to come and should be required reading for any serious Civil War military historian." —Journal of Southern History
