    Disappointing CollectionOriginally Published in 1996.Re Issue Published by Castle Books in 2003.Great Gambles of the Civil War focuses on those moments when a general took a risk to give himself an advantage One could argue that all of war is a risk, including every battle and every maneuver but Author Philip Katcher has limited his book to just thirteen events Some are battles, some are campaigns but all demonstrate risk Philip Katcher has written numerous books on the Civil War so this has all [...]

    My parents picked this one up for me while they were on a road trip down South The book focuses on gambles the different combatants took during the American Civil War and succeeded with There a different types of gambles from naval engagements, to small unit actions, all the way up thru corp level gambles Each chapter is the complete story of the gamble with no particular order to the gambles Because of this, the book makes for a good bedside reader or when a person doesn t mind picking up a boo [...]

    Like many such compendium volumes, it has the problem that the author can t be an expert in everything, and in a few cases overlooks details that put a different spin on the context Still, the book is a fascinating examination of military risk taking, from small unit combat to complex battles and campaigns By not focusing purely on successful gambles, it becomes interesting as the successes and failures slowly unfold to the reader.Readers who find any particular chapter especially interesting [...]

    Very interesting book I found out some details of major batles I didn t know, and I found out about some battles that I had never heard of The only thing that is stopping me from giving it 5 stars is that the author doesn t really get into how these battles affected or may have affected the overall war He tends to stick on the small picture I would have liked additional information speculation on how it affected the big picture.

    This book s major flaws come from poor editing It contains many typos and historical inaccuracies Also, the format of each chapter is very dull and repetitive.
