Army of Tennessee OB study

Author Darrell Collins compiled information he extracted primarily from the O.R. in a useful way for his 2013 book The Army of the Potomac: Order of Battle, 1861-1865, with Commanders, Strengths, Losses and More. His next volume, The Army of Northern Virginia: Organization, Strength, Casualties 1861-1865 (2015), far exceeded the first in terms of scope and reference value, so much so that one wishes Collins might revisit the Potomac army. For now, though, the series (I suppose we can now call it that) has headed out west to examine another of the war's main field armies. The Army of Tennessee: Organization, Strength, Casualties, 1862-1865 (McFarland) is currently scheduled for a late 2016 release.
