Master of War: The Life of Major-General George H. Thomas by Benson Bobrick.
Benson Bobrick recounts the military career of Union General George H. Thomas, known as the "The Rock of Chickamauga," whom the author argues was the most successful general during the Civil War. Mr. Bobrick contends that Union Generals Ulysses S. Grant and William Tecumseh Sherman minimized General Thomas' efforts to inflate their own. This event was hosted by The Civil War Round Table of New York at 3 West Club in New York City.
