Editorial Reviews

Review

"By profiling in a single, accessible account the officers who were largely responsible for the army's day-to-day operations, the book makes a valuable contribution to our knowledge about those who fought in the Civil War." -- "Military History"

Review

For any Virginia Civil War buff with a library, this compilation will be an indispensable addition.--Richmond Times-Dispatch



Staff Officers in Gray is that rarest of history books--a seminal source that will endure through the decades and be as interesting and valuable a century from now as it is today.--Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star



An essential reference. . . . All those who read about, research, and write about the Army of Northern Virginia should welcome this impressive achievement.--Journal of Military History



An indispensable reference work that belongs on the shelf of every scholar and buff interested in the Army of Northern Virginia. The introduction alone is worth the price of the book; the roster provides an exhaustive compilation of information available nowhere else. This is truly a remarkable piece of scholarship.--Gordon C. Rhea, author of Cold Harbor: Grant and Lee, May 26-June 3, 1864



By profiling in a single, accessible account the officers who were largely responsible for the army's day-to-day operations, the book makes a valuable contribution to our knowledge about those who fought in the Civil War.--Military History



A unique and valuable resource for Civil War historians and genealogists.--Choice



Krick's meticulous work on a previously neglected topic [is] an essential tool for general reference as well as a valuable aid for further study.--Florida Historical Quarterly



Excellent, impressive and lean. . . . An absolute necessity for any researcher of the Army of Northern Virginia. The casual and curious reader will find the opening text a stellar explanation of staff officers and their duties and dilemmas and, more importantly, will come away from reading this with a new insight into the roles played by staff officers.--Southern Historian



Staff Officers in Gray is a wonderful book for anyone interested in the Confederate military in general or the Army of Northern Virginia in particular.--Louisiana History

Format: Hardcover
A product of a decade of dedicated research, "Staff Officers in Gray" is an essential reference for historians, genealogists and the "just plain curious" concerning themselves with the Confederate Army. It is not limited to the Army of Northern Virginia, but includes Krick's gleanings from records dealing with other Confederate armies and other generals, as well as several rare illustrations. Excellent introductory essay is itself worth the price of admission. Super.

This book is just a list of officers. It serves it's purpose, but if you want detailed information about an officer, you will need to supplement it elsewhere.
