A potent fighting force that changed the course of the Civil War, the Army of the Cumberland was the North's second-most-powerful army, surpassed in size only by the Army of the Potomac. The Cumberland army engaged the enemy across five times more territory with one-third to one-half fewer men than the Army of the Potomac, and yet its achievements in the western theater rivaled those of the larger eastern army. In Days of Glory, Larry J. Daniel brings his analytic and descriptive skills to bear on the Cumberlanders as he explores the dynamics of discord, political infighting, and feeble leadership that stymied the army in achieving its full potential. Making extensive use of thousands of letters and diaries, Daniel creates an epic portrayal of the developing Cumberland army, from untrained volunteers to hardened soldiers united in their hatred of the Confederates.… (mere)

A command history of the Army of the Cumberland, from its inception as the Army of the Ohio to the divison of the great Army of the West at Atlanta. Particular emphasis is given to the relationships of the flag-grade officers, displaying Daniel's usual flair for dry criticism. It doesn't seem unfair to me that Daniel wants to remind readers that it took Chickamauga to make the reputation of George Thomas, as before this he was merely another methodical plodder from West Point. This is not to mention that Thomas was lacking the sort of political backing normally needed to ascend to high command in the Civil War. ( )

I struggled with this book. There are many references from letters and diary written by soldiers of the times. Too many are used and one looses track of the point that was trying to be made. The facts seem to be accurate but sorting them out is tiresome. There are no maps provided and one finds themself trying to look up the locations reference on other sources. I felt that the author was too harsh on General Thomas. He supported Grant's opinion on Thomas about being too defensive and slow on the offensive. ( )
