Second Manassas 1862: Robert E Lee's Greatest Victory


Updated 5/19/04

This book is similar to the other Osprey titles, and was a good read, adequately covering the main battle along with the peripheral battles such as Cedar Mountain, Brawner's Farm, and Chantilly. The maps are good, as in all of the Osprey titles. There is a complete OOB in the back, but the strengths do not go down to even Brigade level in a lot of places, which is very disappointing. All in all, an excellent introduction to the Campaign.
