Forged in battle : the Civil War alliance of Black soldiers and white officers by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Book )
13 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and held by 2,308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Against the tumultuous background of military combat, racial conflict, and struggle for national survival, this book brings to life the story and extraordinary performance of The United States Colored Troops on the battlefields of the Civil War. One hundred and eighty thousand African-Americans, enslaved in the South, discriminated against in the North, and widely regarded as inferior in both sections, became soldiers in the Union Army in a bold experiment born of necessity
The march to the sea and beyond : Sherman's troops in the Savannah and Carolinas campaigns by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Book )
9 editions published between 1985 and 1995 in English and held by 1,307 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In his famous "March to the Sea" in 1864 and 1865 General William Sherman effectively ended the Civil War and at the same time introduced the devastating concept of "total war." Joseph T. Glatthaar presents here a lively and dramatic account of this terrifying and terrifyingly effective sweep through the South from an entirely new perspective: through the eyes of the common soldier. - Jacket flap
General Lee's army : from victory to collapse by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Book )
8 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
General Robert E. Lee's army was a surprise to almost everyone: With daring early victories and an invasion into the North, they nearly managed to convince the North to give up the fight. Astonishingly, after 150 years of scholarship, there are still some major surprises about the Army of Northern Virginia. Historian Joseph T. Glatthaar draws on sources assembled over two decades--from letters and diaries, to official war records, to a new, definitive database of statistics--to rewrite the history of the Civil War's most important army and, indeed, of the war itself. The history of Lee's army is a powerful lens on the entire war. The fate of Lee's army explains why the South almost won--and why it lost. The story of his men--their reasons for fighting, their cohesion, mounting casualties, diseases, supply problems, and discipline problems--tells it all.--From publisher description
Partners in command : the relationships between leaders in the Civil War by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1996 in English and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sherman, Grant, Jackson, Lee, and all the great commanders of the Civil War remain a source of enduring fascination. But, although their individual personalities and strategies are well-known, the truth is that no commander fights a war alone. An essential determinant of victory in any large-scale conflict is effective collaboration among high-ranking military commanders and between those leaders and their civilian superiors. This was especially true in the Civil War where compatability and communication among commanders spelled the difference between victory and defeat for the Union. While the South had its share of successful partnerships, the intense conflict and mistrust among Confederate leaders contributed heavily to their ultimate defeat. Now, prize-winning historian Joseph T. Glatthaar takes us into battlefield tents and halls of government, to look closely at several of these critical relationships on both sides of the conflict and assess their impact on the outcome of the Civil War. - Jacket flap
Forgotten allies : the Oneida Indians and the American revolution by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Book )
5 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 768 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Tribal, violent, riven with fierce and competing loyalties, the American Revolution as told through the Oneida Indians, the only Iroquois Nation to side with the rebels, shatters the old story of a contest of ideas punctuated by premodern set-piece warfare pitting patriotic colonists against British Redcoats. With new detail and historical sweep, Joseph T. Glatthaar and James Kirby Martin offer a vivid account of the Revolution's forgotten heroes, the allies who risked their land, their culture, and their lives to join in a war that gave birth to a new nation at the expense of their own. Not only capturing for the first time the full sacrifice of the Oneida in securing American independence, Forgotten Allies also provides details and insights into Oneida culture and how it was shaped, changed, and molded throughout many years of contact with the American colonists. Above all else, it depicts the valor and determination of an Indian nation that fought with all the resolve of the rebels only to be erased from America's collective memory. A long-overdue corrective, Forgotten Allies makes certain that the Oneidas' story is finally told

"In this ... quantitative study, Joseph T. Glatthaar provides a comprehensive narrative and statistical analysis of many key aspects of General Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia ...

General Lee's army from victory to collapse by Joseph T Glatthaar ( Recording )
9 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 185 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This history of the Civil War and the Confederacy is told through the lens of its most crucial army, the Army of Northern Virginia commanded by Robert E. Lee. General Lee's Army takes readers across the Rebel landscape, from campfires to battlefields to their homes, as it portrays a world of life, death, healing, and hardship. Detailing the feelings and conduct of officers and enlisted men throughout the course of the war, it demonstrates how effectively Lee's men served their country and just how close the South came to winning the great war between the states--and why it ultimately lost. Glatthaar investigates the South's commitment to the war and its gradual erosion, and he analyzes Lee's army in triumph and defeat. Fourteen years in the making, this scholarly tour-de-force upends much of the conventional wisdom about the Civil War

2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
With an Afterword by Joseph T. Glatthaar The View from the Ground brings together the perspectives of Civil War soldiers on all aspects of the conflict, revealing as much about nineteenth-century America as it does about the war itself. The contributors investigate the issues engaged by soldiers during the war, including slavery and racial tensions, the isolation that many men of faith felt in the early months of the war, the divide between soldiers and civilians, and the inherent difficulty in reconciling the act of killing with Christian precepts of charity and peacefulness. They also explor
