Donald Stoker argues that superior Union strategy, developed by Abraham Lincoln primarily, more than superior resources, ultimately led to Civil War victory. He does advance the controversial theory that Gen. George McClellan had a good strategic vision that could have shortened the war considerably if not for his reluctance to act and Lincoln's ultimate loss of faith in his generalship. He contrasts Lincoln's strategic grasp with that of Jefferson Davis, specifically faulting Davis' mishandling of the Border States. Book Condition : New. Dust Jacket Condition : New.
