This is the first authoritative single-volume history of the Army of the Potomac in many years. From Bull Run to Gettysburg to Appomattox, the Army of the Potomac repeatedly fought - and eventually defeated - Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia. The author is one of the finest Civil War historians and brings to life the battles, the generals, and the common soldiers who fought for the Union and ultimately prevailed. He takes the reader into the heart of the action and shows how Lincoln carefully oversaw the operations of the Army, learning as he progressed, until he found in Grant the commander he had long sought.
