Stonewall in the Valley: Thomas J. 'Stonewall' Jackson's Shenandoah Valley Campaign, Spring 1862

Sprednja platnica
Stackpole Books, 2002 - 599 strani
The Valley Campaign conducted by Maj. Gen. Thomas J. "Stonewall" Jackson has long fascinated those interested in the American Civil War as well as general students of military history, all of whom still question exactly what Jackson did in the Shenandoah in 1862 and how he did it.

This edition offers new insights on the most significant moments of Stonewall's Shenandoah triumph.
