The Shipwreck of Their Hopes: The Battles for Chattanooga

A Main Selection of the History Book Club. Chosen by Civil War Magazine as one of the 100 greatest books ever written on the Civil War.

"Cozzens follows up his magisterial account of the Battle of Chickamauga, This Terrible Sound (1992), with an equally authoritative study of the Chattanooga campaign that followed it. Like its predecessor on Chickamauga, this is such a good book on Chattanooga that it's hard to believe any Civil War collection will need another book on the subject for at least a generation." -Booklist

"Provides beyond question the most thoroughly researched and well-written account of the loss of Chattanooga to date." -Civil War Times Illustrated

"Another masterful work, a combination of rich insight and objectivity." -Blue & Gray Magazine
