BOOK REVIEW: Rebel Brass: The Confederate Command System

BOOK REVIEW: Rebel Brass: The Confederate Command System

by Frank E. Vandiver.

A small, short, 126-page book from LSU Press in 1952 read like a stream of consciousness than scholarly tome. It offered an overview of the upper echelons of the CSA executive branch, from President Jefferson Davis through the multiple secretaries of Army and Navy, army commanders, and a few other key men, and their often tumultuous interactions with each other. Occasional bright spots of leadership, but it's a wonder anything got done -- and was often done ineptly.

Not a detailed look, but enjoyed the broad overview.
