Has anyone read Albert Sidney Johnston, soldier of three republics By Charles P. Roland? I was reading parts of it on Google Books. It has alot of details regarding his death and the effect on the Confederate attacks afterwards.
I haven't. Have you read any books specifically on Shiloh (such the book I quoted above)?
Albert Sidney Johnston, one of the ablest soldiers on the Confederate roster, too bad he was killed. I hate that fact.
After reading Daniel's book on Shiloh and Army of the Heartland, if Albert Sidney Johnston was one of the ablest soldiers on the Confederate roster, the Confederacy was doomed.
His Civil War record simply does not support that he was able to command an army. A corps? Maybe. Division? Probably. Army? No.
