Of the various books I own on the subject, I recommend this one as the most concise over-view of the little discussed battles in Arizona and New Mexico. While not the easiest read, it is the best of its weight.
He covers not just the actions against the Confederates, but also against the American Indians who took advantage of the displaced regular army units pulled back east to cause some havoc. This book covers the major battles, and touches on the associated skirmishes. It does not delve into too many of the personalities and their reasons, but it does address a number of them. Nor does it cover the variety of ethnic issues that were present in this campaign.
