[EAN: 9780375412189], Fine, [PU: Alfred A. Knopf, Borzoi Books, Random House, Inc., New York], HISTORY: UNITED STATES: CIVIL WAR: NOTHING BUT VICTORY: THE ARMY OF TENNESSEE, 1861-1865: WOODWORTH, STEVEN E., History|United States|Civil War Period (1850-1877), Jacket, Fine virtually as-new hardcover (2005), probably from a Book Club extension of the publisher's orig. print run, as-new mylar-protected gloss-laminated illus. cover w/ excellent sharp new edges & corners, excellent rich-brown paper-over-boards cover w/ sharp new edges & corners, excellent sewn binding w/ tight signatures & black cloth bands at spine-caps, immaculate text-block exterior w/ smooth-cut top & bottom edges & cut-page-style deckle side-edging, impeccable end-papers on heavy cream-white paper, pristine interior printed in Fournier on excellent unblemished paper * Introduction (ix), Acknowledgments (643), Notes (645), Sources (725), Index (739) * 6.50" x 9.50" x 2.24", 1.22 kg, xiii+760 (773) pp. * In this first full field study of the remarkable Union army that effectively won the Civil War, historian Steven Woodworth tells the engrossing story of its victorious career by drawing on letters, diaries, & newspaper accounts of the time. The Army of the Tennessee operated in the Mississippi River Valley through the first half of the Civil War, winning major victories at the Confederate strongholds of Fort Henry & Fort Donelson, Shiloh, & Vicksburg. Created at Cairo, Illinois, in the summer of 1861, the army took shape under the firm hand of Ulysses S. Grant, who molded it into a hard-hitting, self-reliant fighting machine. Woodworth takes us to its winter 1863 encampment in the Louisiana swamps, where the soldiers suffered disease, hardship, & thousands of deaths. And we see how the force emerged from that experience even tougher & more aggressive than before. W/ the decisive victory at Vicksburg, the Army of the Tennessee had taken control of the Mississippi away from the Confederates & could swing east to aid other Union troops in a grand rolling up of Rebel defenses. It did so w/ a confidence born of repeated success, even against numerical odds, leading one of its soldiers to remark that he & his comrades expected ?"nothing but victory." The Army of the Tennessee contributed to the Union triumph at Chattanooga in the fall of 1863 & then became part of William Tecumseh Sherman's combined force in the following summer's march to Atlanta. In the complicated maneuvering of that campaign, Sherman referred to the army as his whiplash & used it whenever fast marching and arduous fighting were especially needed. Just outside Atlanta, it absorbed the Confederacy's heaviest counter-blow & experienced its hardest single day of combat. Thereafter, it continued as part of Sherman's armies in his March to the Sea & his campaign through the Carolinas. The story of this army is one of perseverance in the face of difficulty, courage amid severe trials, resolute lessons in fighting taught by equally courageous foes, & the determination of a generation of young men to see a righteous cause all the way through to victory. NOTHING BUT VICTORY is an important addition to the literature of the Civil War. * "Probably the best one-volume history written to date of a Civil War field army. Publisher's Weekly, Starred Review * "Easily the best book in decades about the Civil War beyond the Appalachians. Woodworth skillfully interweaves the letters of semi-literate privates w/ the reports of officers explaining how they won (or why they lost) at places like Shiloh, Vicksburg, Chickamauga, Kennesaw Mountain & Atlanta." - Ernest B. Furgurson, author of "'Freedom Rising: Washington in the Civil War' * "Detailing the remarkable feats of the Army of the Tennessee --gritty pugnacity, the hard hand of war, a refusal to give up or give in-- Steven Woodworth's NOTHING BUT VICTORY is an invaluable addition to the literature of the Civil War." - Jay Winik, author of 'April 1865: The Month That Saved America'

Composed almost entirely of Midwesterners and molded into a lean, skilled fighting machine by Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman, the Army of the Tennessee marched directly into the heart of the Confederacy and won major victories at Shiloh and at the rebel strongholds of Vicksburg and Atlanta.Acclaimed historian Steven Woodworth has produced the first full consideration of this remarkable unit that has received less prestige than the famed Army of the Potomac but was responsible for the decisive victories that turned the tide of war toward the Union. The Army of the Tennessee also shaped the fortunes and futures of both Grant and Sherman, liberating them from civilian life and catapulting them onto the national stage as their triumphs grew. A thrilling account of how a cohesive fighting force is forged by the heat of battle and how a confidence born of repeated success could lead soldiers to expect nothing but victory.
