On a November afternoon in 1864, the weary General John Bell Hood surveyed the army waiting to attack the Federals at Franklin, Tennessee. He gave the signal almost at dusk, and the Confederates rushed forward to utter devastation. This book describes the events and causes of the five-hour battle in gripping detail, particularly focusing on the reasons for such slaughter at a time when the outcome of the war had already been decided. The genesis of the senseless tragedy, according to McDonough and Connelly, lay in the appointment of Hood to command the Army of Tennessee. It was his decision to throw a total force of some 20,000 men into an ill-advised frontal assault against the Union troops. The Confederates made their approach, without substantial artillery support, on a level of some two miles. Why did Hood select such a catastrophic strategy? The authors analyze his reasoning in full. Their vivid and moving narrative, with statements from eyewitnesses to the battle, makes compelling reading for all Civil War buffs and historians. Book jacket.… (mer)

Five Tragic Hours: The Battle of Franklin av James L. McDonough

  1. 00
    The Confederacy's Last Hurrah: Spring Hill, Franklin, and Nashville av Wiley Sword (farrargirl1.)
    farrargirl1.: This book by Wiley Sword is a superbly detailed account of the men and events surrounding the Battle of Franklin, as well as a very readable summary of the actual battle itself. Together, I found them to be perfect companion pieces, serving as both text books and guides for anyone trying to understand the tragic complexities of the battle which resulted in six Confederate Generals being killed in less than five hours.… (mer)

This is a relatively short, compact book filled with 34 pages of photographic images, numerous battle maps, and an appendix with an excellent Order of Battle summary. General Hood’s battle strategies are explained and analyzed pertaining to his reasoning or his rationale in expert detail.
The book served as my textbook and guide as I walked the battlefield, wondering of my great grandfather’s thoughts as he was shot in the head by a minie ball. He survived this carnage but never once spoke of that day on 30 November, 1864, or of any other day in his two years in battle as a 17 year old boy.
I would also recommend Wiley Sword’s book on Franklin, The Confedracy’s Last Hurrah, as a companion piece. Both deliver, if one has the courage to know the facts. ( )

Excellent telling of the final days of the Army of Tennessee under Gen. John Bell Hood, CSA. After reading this and other civil war treatises I wonder why the fort in Texas bears Gen. Hood's name. Very readable, once started I couldn't put it down. ( )

This was a quick read. The authors did a good job of describing the battle. There was very personal information on each ot the generals listed. There was hardly any data from diary's and letters. Its basically a summary of the battle with information gleened from other noted sourcses such as Stanley Horn (The Army of Tennessee 1861-1865) and Thomas Connelly (Autumn of the Heartland and The Army of Tennessee).
