In December 1862, things were still confused for the Union. Antietam had been a failure for both sides, and although the battle showed that the Union army could bring the Confederates to bay, it couldn’t pin them in one place long enough to destroy them. In December 1862, General Burnside, newly appointed to command the Army of the Potomac, planned to seize and secure the town of Fredericksburg, and then take the Confederate capital of Richmond.

Carl Smith’s book details the epic struggle that engulfed the Union side as it crossed the Rappahannock on December 11, encountering stiff opposition from Lee’s men.

Featuring many annotated maps and illustrations, this book provides a details the command strategies, tactics and battle experiences of the opposing forces throughout the crucial stages of the campaign.

    Usually interpreted as.... No I will give Exact Editions time to correct the mistake. But this is definitely the worst app experience I have had yet. A true shame since I swear by Osprey titles and am the proud owner of more titles than one should have in a single home. I will stick to the kindle format event though it is more expensive and not as easy to browse the exact editions versions. But the multiple codes and failure to literally deliver the product is inexcusable. I imagine this is why Osprey has so few titles with Exact Editions, disappointing deal perhaps?

  • Not so free

    I got suckered into a , I thought was free book. You get a few pages , then the real cost to read the book. I love civil war history, I'm sure it's good read, just I don't like being lied too.

    Although I'm sure there's a reason why they're selling the full version for $8 u.s., there are plenty of Civil-War-related ebooks that are free or cheaper than this one, and cover a broader range of topics and detail. So my question to the authors is - can you explain in your ebook blurb why anyone should spend $8 on this one narrow account from a war that concluded 145 years ago?
