Much-Anticipated Paperback Editions of Award-winning Author David A. Powell's Chickamauga Campaign

EL DORADO HILLS, Calif. - Sept. 15, 2017 - PRLog -- Savas Beatie recently announced the release of paperback editions for the second and third volumes in David A. Powell's magnificent Chickamauga trilogy, The Chickamauga Campaign – Glory or the Grave: The Breakthrough, the Union Collapse, and the Defense of Horseshoe Ridge, September 20, 1863 and The Chickamauga Campaign - Barren Victory:The Retreat into Chattanooga, the Confederate Pursuit, and the Aftermath of the Battle, September 21 to October 20, 1863, which are comprehensive examinations, more than a decade in the making, of one of the most important and complex military operations of the Civil War.

The first installment, A Mad Irregular Battle, introduced readers to the major characters of this sweeping drama and carried them from the Union crossing of the Tennessee River up through the bloody but inconclusive combat of the first and second days of the battle.

Glory or the Grave, the trilogy's second volume depicts the final day of battle, when the Confederate army attacked and broke through the Union lines. The massive rout that ensued was ameliorated somewhat by an incredible defensive stand atop Horseshoe Ridge, which Powell carefully dissects at the regimental level.

Barren Victory, Powell's final installment, examines the immediate aftermath of this great battle with unprecedented clarity and detail. It covers the confused retreat and pursuit into Chattanooga, insight into the fighting and its impact on the war as a whole, a detailed examination into the strengths and losses of the two armies, and an exhaustive bibliography.

"I will not mince words. Dave Powell's three-volume work on the Chickamauga Campaign represents the most significant Western Campaign contribution since Albert Castel's Decision in the West…Must reading!" said Larry J. Daniel, author of Days of Glory: The Army of the Cumberland.

"The release of both Glory or the Grave and Barren Victory – volumes II and III, respectively, of the award-winning Chickamauga Campaign trilogy – will now make the entire three-book set accessible to even more readers," states Powell. "As the hard-cover editions become more difficult to find, having all three volumes (A Mad Irregular Battle was released in 2016) available in affordable soft-cover is extremely satisfying. Writing The Chickamauga Campaign was a lifelong dream for me; and I am delighted that it has had such a warm welcome from readers."
