406 pp, large 8vo (9 1/2" H). B&w photographs. "(P)rofiles some 2,300 staff officers in Robert E. Lee's famous Army of Northern Virginia. These men - ordnance officers, engineers, aides-de-camp, and quartermasters, among others - worked at the side of many of the Confederacy's greatest figures, helping to feed and clothe the army, maintain its discipline, and operate its military machinery. A typical entry includes the officer's full name, the date and place of his birth and death, and details of his education and occupation. Each biographical summary also includes a synopsis of the officer's military records. An introduction discusses the role of staff officers in the Confederate army, explaining that the Confederacy's use of staff developed in response to the need to train and support a rapidly growing and sometimes unwieldly army. The introduction also describes the evolution of individual staff positions and makes some broad generalizations about the officers' common characteristics. Two appendixes provide a list of more than 3,000 staff officers who served in other armies of the Confederacy and a complete roster of known staff officers of each general in the Army of Northern Virginia. Synthesizing the contents of thousands of unpublished official documents, (this book) will be of interest to anyone studying the battles, personnel, and organization of the Army of Northern Virginia. By profiling in a single, accessible volume the officers who were largely responsible for the amry's day-to-day operations, (it) makes a valuable contribution to our knowledge about those who fought in the Civil War." Previous owner's place, date and signature in pencil on half-title page. Dust jacket has minor edge wrinkling, one tiny edge tear, minor rubbing.
