Abstract

Reardon's work leaves us with good ideas for future research. There is no English-language biography of Jomini, and an account of his life might be an excellent topic for a doctoral dissertation. An examination of Jomini's influence on Confederates such as P. G. T. Beauregard would be interesting. Reardon also leaves this reader wanting someone to write a historiographical essay examining the influence of Jomini's ideas on historians writing about the Civil War. Reardon begins this discussion. Donald Stoker donald stoker, professor of strategy and policy for the U.S. Naval War College's program at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California, is the author most recently of The Grand Design: Strategy and the U.S. Civil War (Oxford University Press, 2010), which won the 2010 Fletcher Pratt Award for the best nonfiction Civil War book of 2010. The Civil War in the West: Victory and Defeat from the Appalachians to the Mississippi. By Earl J. Hess. (Chapel Hill: University of North Carolina Press, 2012. Pp. 448. Cloth, $40.00.) The prolific Earl Hess, author of numerous books, including a detailed trilogy on field fortifications in the eastern theater, delivers once again. This time, Hess casts his gaze upon the western
