Professor Jay Luvaas was one of the most versatile military historians of the second half of the Twentieth Century. He was not only a noted Civil War historian, but also an expert on the wars of Frederick the Great and Napoleon. His first monograph addressed the European legacy of the American Civil War. This work is one he was especially proud of, based upon a conversation we had years ago, because he felt he had made accessible some of the seminal writings of one of the finest British military historians of the Victorian era. Without this modern edition of some of Henderson's writings, particularly his study of the Battle of Fredericksburg, he would be known, if at all, for his monumental biography of Stonewall Jackson. Professor Luvaas moved from Allegheny College to the U.S. Army War College at Carlisle Barracks, PA.

DJ worn: small tears, small pieces missing. His main thesis is that the failure of the cause rested on two main issues, -- that the statesmen did not measure up to the military leaders, and that the Confederacy was founded on a principle that made impossible the orderly conduct of public affairs. He takes his men individually; he views them collectively; he sees them as personalities; he sees them as factors in the running of a machine, and hesitates not at all in pointing out their adequacies and inadequacies to the issue before them. Davis himself, Stephens, Toombs, Cobb, Seddon, Benjamin --all more vital to the ultimate history of the Confederacy than many whose names are better known to the average American. A study of civil aspects rather than military. Important for schools, colleges, public libraries and students of American history.
