896pp., 156 illus., 13 maps, P.B. 2018 reissue. The high command of the Army of the Potomac was an often dysfunctional band, going through the fires of war under seven commanding generals in three years, until Grant came east in 1864. President Lincoln oversaw, argued with, and finally tamed his unruly team. A fine study & effectively the companion to Freeman’s Lee’s Lieutenants.
