Halleck: Lincoln's Chief of Staff (Paperback)Stephen E. Ambrose (other)
- We can order this
Ambrose argues persuasively that Halleck has been greatly underrated as a war theorist because of past writers' failure to do justice to his close involvement with movements basic to the development of the American military establishment. He concedes that ""by all the touchstones used to judge great captains of the past, Halleck was a failure,"" but maintains he was nonetheless ""the 'Old Brains' of the Union Army in the time of the testing of the nation.
