Reviews

Highly recommended. * Choice * A thoughtful treatise on an important subject related to war, culture, and society, Engineering Victory is highly recommended reading. * Civil War Books and Authors * Army's description of Union Army engineers and their accomplishments is certainly thorough and impressive. He relates numerous examples of how the effective use of engineers led to victory while an ineffective application led to defeat. * The Michigan Historical Review * Thomas Army Jr. has produced an interesting and thought-provoking study of military engineering in the Civil War with which students of the war, logistics, and technology will have to reckon. * Civil War Book Review * ... Army has made a major contribution to the understanding of how engineering and technology played a vital role in Union victory. Every scholar interested in the Civil War, the Union war effort, and the history of technology should grapple with his arguments and their implications. * The Journal of Southern History * ... Engineering Victory deserves praise... * Journal of the Shenandoah Valley During the Civil War Era *
