Harrisburg, Pa. , Stackpole Books 1957 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Poor dust jacket 
Xviii, 278 pages, well illustrated, cloth, DJ, frayed otherwise fine. 8 by 11 inches. From the dust jacket: ""It was almost a hundred years ago that the Confederate soldier marched to the end of his hallowed road, leaving behind on the forsaken fields a gun here, a word there, fragments of the past, to remind us of his devotion to duty and to the land he loved. These tools of war are not common or ordinary equipment, and for good reason. Because of the lack of steel, the Southern soldier's gun barrel was made of iron. Due to the scarceness of iron, his gun frame was made of brass. And so it was, on down the line. The hard-pressed Confederate Ordnance Bureau substituted whatever materials they could secure for the 'impossible' in order to obtain some metal for their production of guns, swords, canteens, cannon, ammunition and the countless other items needed to keep their army in the field. The hands that made these crude but effective arms and accoutrement have long since turned to dust, but men have come to look with favor and admiration on these strange and curiously forged implements of war. . . .. In this volume, the authors have prepared an extensive guide to almost everything the Confederate soldier used, carried, handled or treasured in his long march from Manassas to Appomattox.

15 Alexander, Bevin Lost Victories. the Military Genius of Stonewall Jackson.
Henry Holt & Co 1992 0805018301 / 9780805018301 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
350 pages, map, cloth, DJ, very good. Stated first edition. From Library Journal: "A detailed analysis of the battles and correspondence of Stonewall Jackson leads Alexander to conclude that Jackson's strategic overview was superior to that of Robert E. Lee and would have led to fewer Southern casualties and to the possibility (on at least three occasions) of the total destruction of the Northern Army of the Potomac. He views Lee as a conservative, timid, and nearsighted military leader. This is not a comprehensive biography but a "what if" book analyzing the strategic opinions and views of Stonewall Jackson--a smoothly written, well-researched text offering a new perspective on the Civil War's leading tactical genius. Recommended for military collections. "; 9.30 X 6.40 X 1.30 inches; 350 pages

16 Alexander, Edward Porter (Gallagher, Gary W. , editor) Fighting for the Confederacy. the Personal Recollections of General Edward Porter Alexander .
Chapel Hill, The University of North Carolina Press 1989 0807818488 / 9780807818480 Hardcover Very Good in Fair dust jacket 
664 pages, illustrations, maps, cloth, dust jacket frayed otherwise very good. From Wikipedia: "Edward Porter Alexander (May 26, 1835 – April 28, 1910) was a military engineer, railroad executive, planter, and author. He served first as an officer in the United States Army and later, during the American Civil War (1861–1865) , in the Confederate Army, rising to the rank of brigadier general. Alexander was the officer in charge of the massive artillery bombardment preceding Pickett's Charge, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg, and is also noted for his early use of signals and observation balloons during combat. After the Civil War, he taught mathematics at the University of South Carolina in Columbia, spent time in Nicaragua, and wrote extensive memoirs and analyses of the war, which have received much praise for their insight and objectivity. His Military Memoirs of a Confederate were published in 1907. An extensive personal account of his military training and his participation in the Civil War was rediscovered long after his death and published in 1989 as Fighting for the Confederacy." From Library Journal: "Georgia native and West Point graduate Alexander was involved in nearly all of the significant battles in the Eastern theater of the Civil War and came into frequent contact with the highest command of the Army of Northern Virginia, including Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and James Longstreet. His perspective on such personalities and on the events unfolding around him is a most valuable one. Alexander's memoirs lay virtually untouched for some eight decades until rescued by Gallagher, who has done a splendid job of editing: unobtrusive; the annotation not merely a rehash of that which can be readily found in other Civil War sources. An excellent index and illustrations and maps from the original manuscript complement the text. Recommended for Civil War and military history collections." ; 9.60 X 6.53 X 1.81 inches; 692 pages

18 Ambrose, Stephen E. Americans at War
Jackson, University Press of Mississippi 1997 1578060265 / 9781578060269 Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Xiv, [2], 200, [1] pages, cloth, DJ, very good. Embossed label of the previous owner, a noted military collector. From Publishers Weekly: "With its 15 essays (eight previously unpublished, the remaining published in various journals over the course of 30 years) , this is a precis of a brilliant career. Reflecting such works as Crazy Horse and Custer, D-Day, Undaunted Courage and Eisenhower and Berlin, 1945, these essays show Ambrose as a wide-ranging writer and a historian who does his best to understand the soldiers he studies, whether through thousands of interviews or through a swim in the choppy June waters off Normandy. After the first, longest and most strictly tactical piece on Vicksburg, he moves more or less chronologically to the 21st century and the future of war. He offers three profiles, not of the men he admires most, but of three histrionic egotists--Custer, MacArthur and Patton--with complicated personal and martial legacies. Ambrose doesn't shy away from the most controversial subjects, but rather marshals fact and feeling in convincing argument. Take ""The Atomic Bomb and Its Consequences," " in which he contends that the atomic bomb may have saved Japanese lives by allowing the country's military leaders a face-saving way to get out of a war long lost. Without the bomb and the surrender, Japan would have been subjected to extensive conventional bombardment, and, Ambrose reminds us, the March 1945 raid on Tokyo caused more casualties than did the atomic bombs. His discussion of My Lai never gives the specifics of the 1968 massacre. But in a long accounting of Meriwether Lewis's ongoing minor skirmishes with Native Americans, Wounded Knee and other incidents, he puts My Lai into a context of terror, anger and lost control. ""My Lai," " he says, ""was not an exception or an aberration. Atrocity is a part of war that needs to be recognized and discussed." " ; 8.80 X 5.90 X 0.90 inches; 201 pages
