Praise for Champion Hill

"One strength of this book is meticulous research. Another is the cartography, with more than three dozen maps that provide clear, detailed tactical depictions. Such maps are crucial for tactical histories... Smith has demonstrated a high standard that others should strive to emulate."

- James R. Arnold,
Journal of Military History (69.2, 2005)

"Smith has performed outstanding research into new sources, as well as the old classics, to present a well crafted and cogent narrative on the events of May 16, 1863. We have needed a book on Champion Hill, and surely this is it. It is unlikely that we shall need another."

- William C. Davis,
Noted Civil War Author
