Book Review: The Campaign For Atlanta, William R. Scaife

The Campaign For Atlanta, by William R. Scaife
Fourth Edition 1993, ISBN 0-9619508-8-9
Kennesaw Mountain Historical Association, Kennesaw Georgia

This is a very well made and printed book.  I suspect it was a short run printing and they did a fine job.  This book is great for discussions of the details of specific battles throughout the campaign.  It is well researched and full of quotes and maps.  I have to say that the maps featured in this book are the best I have come across so far in print.  They show troop positions and movements along with the terrain and most modern roads.  This was a big help while trying to locate areas in Dalton and Resaca.  I am sure it will be a big help as I move forward as well.  This is probably my favorite book of all the Civil War Books I have.

It is a little pricy.  I lucked out and found the last copy at Pickett’s Mill State Historic Site and it cost me $50.00.  You may also be able to find it at the bookstore at the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park.  This bookstore operates in conjunction with the Kennesaw Mountain Historical Association.
