A companion volume to Autumn of Glory Most of the Civil War was fought on Southern soil. The responsibility for defending the Confederacy rested with two great military forces. One of these armies defended the ?heartland? of the Confederacy?a vital area which embraced the state of Tennessee and large portions of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, and Kentucky. This is the story of that army?the first detailed study to be based upon research in manuscript collections and the first to explore the military significance of the heartland. The Army of Tennessee faced problems and obstacles far more staggering than any encountered by the other great Confederate force. Lee?s Army of Northern Virginia. Lee?s army was charged with the defense of an area considerably smaller in size. And while Lee?s line of defense extended only about 125 miles, the front defended by the Army of Tennessee stretched for some 400 miles. Yet the Army of the Heartland has heretofore been given relatively slight attention by historians. With this volume Thomas Lawrence Connelly, a native Tennessean, has brought Confederate military history more nearly into balance. Throughout the war the Army of Tennessee was plagued by ineffective leadership. There were personality conflicts between commanding generals and corps commanders and breakdowns in communications with the Confederate government at Richmond. Lacking the leadership of a Lee, the Army of Tennessee failed to attain a real esprit at the corps level. Instead, the common soldiers, sensing the quarrelsome nature of their leaders, developed at regimental and brigade levels their own peculiar brand of morale which sustained them through continuous defeats. Connelly analyzes the influence and impact of each successive commander of the Army. His conclusions regarding Confederate command and leadership are not the conventional ones.… (mere)

This is by far one of the best histories of the Army of Tennessee. The author gets the reader involved in the emotion of the events. His narrative style has the reader involved in the poor decisions made by the Confederates. He also dispells some of the myth of these events with convincing documentation and logic. This book is part one of two series. This book covers how the Army of Tennessee was formed and its early commanders including Isham Harris, govenor of TN and Polk, A S Johnston, and finally Bragg. It covers the Kentucky campaign and Bragg's and Kirby Smith retreat from Kentucky after the battle of Perryville. The second series book is "Autumn of Glory" ( )
