Gwynne Ô Hymns of the Republic ePUB ☆ Hymns of PDF or the Ô hymns kindle, republic pdf, Hymns of pdf, the Republic pdf, of the Republic book, Hymns of the Republic PDFEPUBI was initially disappointed when I heard that Gwynne's latest book would only cover the final year of the Civil War Gwynne has written some of my favorite nonfiction over the last decade so the thought of him pounding out a doorstopper covering the entirety of the war appealed to me greatlyHaving finished this last night I understand why he decided to focus on that final year With 'Hymns of the Republic' we start with the arrival of Grant as the new commander of the Army of the Potomac With Grant's assumption of power the dynamics of the war changed dramatically The casualties climbed exponentially and the attitude towards the opposing army reached black flag take no prisoners levels It was the bleakest hours of the war not just for the armies but for Lincoln himself And this is what stands out about 'Hymns of the Republic' from other war narratives; it does not solely focus on the military aspect of the war Gwynne d

Gwynne Ô Hymns of the Republic ePUB ☆ Hymns of PDF or the Ô hymns kindle, republic pdf, Hymns of pdf, the Republic pdf, of the Republic book, Hymns of the Republic PDFEPUBAs with other books that I have read by the author this one is well written and researched He takes a very different viewpoint from others that I have read about this same time period during the American Civil War He chooses to basically state that the well known leaders of the year Grant Lee Sherman and Lincoln were all seriously flawed and nowhere near the heroes that they have been presented by others A reader must remember that this is the author's opinion and reality is most likely somewhere between his opinion and othersI recommend

    PDF/EPUB S.C. Gwynne Ô Hymns of the Republic ePUB ☆ Hymns of PDF or the Ô hymns kindle, republic pdf, Hymns of pdf, the Republic pdf, of the Republic book, Hymns of the Republic PDFEPUBAn accessible and compelling workThere’s not much new material and Gwynne seems to have relied mostly on secondary sources The narrative mostly focuses on the eastern theater especially Virginia opening with the Overland Campaign and ending at Appomattox He ably covers a broad range of subjects such as trench warfare the horrors of Civil War medical practices the experience of civilians the politics of slavery policies toward the border states the evolution of “hard war” the impact of emancipation and the importance of black troops Gwynne’s writing is vivid and graphic He does a good job describing how events on the battlefield influenced events elsewhere His coverage of the people is mostly evenhanded and he succeeds at bringing them to lifeThe narrative is clear and well organized but some readers may find the book too brief for such
