This work of his has long been hailed as the classic, definitive work on the Vicksburg Campaign and it represents the campaign in exquisite detail, while maintaining a clear, objective, overall grasp of the action as it took place more than a century ago. With the publication of his tomes on Vicksburg, Ed Bearss dispelled the disturbing myth that contemporary authors, regardless of the apparent surplus of available information on the period, are unable to capture the essence of the Civil War in a coherent, accurate, and interesting manner. The Vicksburg Campaign incorporates all three of these elements into a neatly woven package, resulting in what is considered by many to be an irreplaceable addition to the modern-day Civil War library.
Within the works, Ed Bearss relies heavily on participant accounts in an effort to substantiate strategic developments throughout the campaign. He provides an in-depth analyses and a non-biased viewpoint. In Volume I, the reader is able to muddle with Federal Gen. Grant upon the seeming impossibility of overwhelming the Confederates beyond the citys ramparts.
Volume II allows the reader to witness the Federal strategy of a two-pronged attack of Vicksburg from both south and east. Volume III considers the large operations by the Union navy on the Yazoo and Red Rivers, as well as Grants final tactics, and how they each contributed to the eventual Federal victory. Separately, each volume presents its own, unique view of the Vicksburg Campaign, the outcome of which was crucial to that of the entire Civil War.Together, they furnish the reader with one of the most intelligible and heavily researched military studies ever comprised. The author provides an exhaustive account of the fighting for the Mississippis primary fortress. The 3 volumes trace Grants strategy for capturing Vicksburg and the unfolding siege from November 1862 to the citys fall.
