 Amazon.com: Books: Damage Them All You Can: Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-05)
Although the military exploits of the Army of Northern Virginia are familiar to Civil War scholars and aficionados alike, this unique history by journalist Walsh (Public Enemies: The Mayor, the Mob, and the Crime That Was) uses evocative vignettes to explore the lesser-known human side of this remarkable fighting machine.
From the army's early victory at First Manassas to its final rout at Sailors Creek, the reader is introduced to the farmers, craftsmen, laborers, businessmen, teachers, and other professionals who comprised the officer corps and enlisted ranks.
Walsh covers substantially the same territory, surveying Lee's army through the lenses of its commanders, down to brigade level, and retelling its battles, its successes and failures, and the fates of its commanders--the stuff of an epic portion of American history that is familiar to seasoned Civil War buffs.

McMurry studies the military, political, geographical, and logistical factors and decides that the Army of Northern Virginia was simply a better fighting force, even without Lee's tactical genius.
Students of the American Civil War have long pondered the root causes of the illustrious successes of the Army of Northern Virginia in comparison to the miserable failures of the Army of Tennessee.
Additional statistical analysis indeed shows, as McMurry claims, that the Army of Northern Virginia possessed a larger percentage of officers with prior military experience and/or educations, and that the average regiment sent to Virginia was organized several months prior to the average regiment in the Army of Tennessee.
