📙 Reflections of a Civil War Historian: Essays on Leadership, Society, and the Art of War by Herman Hattaway — download pdf


This collection of essays is a compendium of Herman Hattaway's writings from throughout his more-than-forty-year career. Hattaway is a captivating historian who always seeks to engage others in the study of history. He has made many important scholarly contributions to our understanding of the Civil War, including new information on the military use of balloons, the relevance of religion in warfare, and the nature of good (and bad) military leadership. This book will appeal to the many historians and others who have been influenced by Hattaway over the years. It demonstrates how he has evolved as a historian and brings to light many essays that were never before published or published only in obscure journals.

''All of Hattaway's work . . . is characterized by great scholarship with a kind of charming quirkiness.''-George Rable
