Captains of the Civil War, A Chronicle of the Blue and the Gray : A Chronicle of the Blue and the Gray
First published in 1921. The author, a Canadian was Late Colonel commanding 8th Royal Rifles, and Officer-in-charge, Canadian Special Mission Overseas. The Preface begins: Sixty years ago today the guns that thundered round Fort Sumter began the third and greatest modern civil war fought by English-speaking people. This war was quite as full of politics as were the other two--the War of the American Revolution and that of Puritan and Cavalier. But, though the present Chronicle never ignores the vital correlations between statesmen and commanders, it is a book of warriors, through and through.
