George B. McClellan, the Man who Saved the Union
University of North Carolina Press, 1941 - United States - 296 pages
In their study, the authors redeem the most ill-judged man in American history" and point out that it was he who took command of the Union forces and probably saved the Union cause. More than the stry of McClellan, it is the story of the nation's capital fearful of invasion, of a Washington dominated by politicians and partisans, and of military intrigue in high places."
