Praise for The Chickamauga Campaign - Glory or the Grave
"In the years to come, students who want to know what happened at Chickamauga will always turn to David A. Powell's magnum opus. I can't imagine any future scholar even attempting to equal its research and exposition."
- Civil War News
"Award-winning author David Powell has already made a name for himself with his previous Chickamauga-related books. His latest monograph, The Chickamauga Campaign-Glory or the Grave, the second of three volumes on the full campaign, sets the standard for Civil War battle studies. Powell's monumental contribution is based upon some 2,000 sources and a deep familiarity with the battlefield. The result is a clearly written and intimately detailed account of this complex engagement. No one will ever look at Chickamauga the same way again."
- Lee White, Park Ranger, Chickamauga and Chattanooga National Military Park
"Extremely readable, heavily researched, and mammoth in scope, Dave Powell's Chickamauga study will prove to be the most detailed treatment of the battle to date. Civil War buffs and historians alike will want these books on their bookshelves, where they will take their rightful place beside Tucker and Cozzens as seminal volumes on the battle."
- Timothy B. Smith, author of Champion Hill and Corinth 1862
"David Powell continues to impress with his second volume of The Chickamauga Campaign. This exhaustively researched study puts the reader squarely in the middle of the battle of Chickamauga. He presents a balanced look at not only the fighting, but the myriad personalities who took part. This book is a must for any serious student of the campaign. I eagerly await the final volume that will complete this series."
- Frank P. Varney, author of General Grant and the Rewriting of History: How the Destruction of General William S. Rosecrans Has Influenced Our Understanding of the Civil War
"Glory or the Grave, David A. Powell's second installment of The Chickamauga Campaign, covers the battle's critical third day of fighting and is another substantial contribution to the growing body of knowledge on this important and until now, largely overlooked battle. Impeccably researched, deeply analyzed, and especially well-written, Powell has now fully told the story of the entire battle, with a third volume dealing with the pursuit to Chattanooga and various appendices and bits of miscellany yet to come. When complete, this three-volume set will stand as the definitive study of the campaign."
- Eric J. Wittenberg, award-winning author of "The Devil's to Pay": John Buford at Gettysburg
"Will surely stand for a long time as the finest study on the Confederacy's only major victory in the West. Highly recommended."
