Absolutely brilliant! In 2009, David Powell and David Friedrich combined, with the fabulous assistance of publisher Savas Beatie, to create one of the best ever books about the Battle of Chickamauga. The Battle of Chickamauga was fought in the northwestern corner of Georgia on September 19-20, 1863, and Powell's text and the exquisitely detailed color cartography of David Friedrichs combine to precisely and definitively tell the complete story of the second bloodiest land-battle fought on the North American continent (only Gettysburg was bloodier).

The Maps of Chickamauga : An Atlas of the Chickamauga Campaign, Including the Tullahoma Operations, June 22 - September 23, 1863.

Third in a new series of campaign studies that take a different approach toward military history, The Maps of Chickamauga explores this largely misunderstood battle through the use of 120 full-color maps, graphically illustrating the complex tangle of combat’s ebb and flow that makes the titanic bloodshed of Chickamauga one of the most confusing actions of the American Civil War. Track individual regiments through their engagements at fifteen to twenty-minute intervals or explore each army in motion as brigades and divisions maneuver and deploy to face the enemy. The Maps of Chickamauga allows readers to fully grasp the action at any level of interest.The maps lay out the troops and terrain as they were in September of 1863. Opening and closing chapters describe each army’s approach to the battlefield and the retreat and pursuit to Chattanooga in the aftermath of the bloody combat. In between, sections are devoted to the fighting of September 18, 19, and 20, following the battle as it unfolds from a series of limited collisions between isolated columns into the bloody action of the last two days. Situation maps reflect the posture of each army on an hourly basis, while tactical maps reveal the intricacies of regimental and battery movements.The text accompanying each map explains the action in succinct detail, supported by a host of primary sources. Eyewitness accounts vividly underscore the human aspect of the actions detailed in the maps as brigades and regiments collide. Meticulously researched and footnoted by David Powell with cartography by David Freidrichs, The Maps of Chickamauga relies on the participants’ own words to recreate the course of battle.The Maps of Chickamauga is an ideal companion for battlefield bushwhacking or simply armchair touring. Full color brings the movements to life, allowing readers to grasp the surging give and take of regimental combat in the woods and fields of North Georgia.About the Author: David A. Powell is a graduate of the Virginia Military Institute, class of 1983, with a BA in history. After graduating he went to work in the family business, CBS Messenger, in the Chicago area, but David never lost his intense interest in military history, especially in the American Civil War. He has published articles in a number of magazines, more than fifteen historical simulations of various battles, and led tours to various sites. For the past decade David’s focus has been on the epic battle of Chickamauga.David A. Freidrichs graduated from University of Wisconsin in 1982 and has worked as a civil engineer since then. He is the author of numerous articles and papers on topics ranging from public asset management to military history. David’s interest in military history began at a very early age. This interest combined with a love of maps resulted in the publication of several military simulations over the years.

If you're looking for a very good source describing and illustrating the Chickamauga Battle, including the preceding Tullahoma Campaign and the retreat of the Union Army back to Chattanooga and its investment by the Confederates after the battle--this is it. “The Maps of Chickamauga” provide extensive, large colored maps of every major action and movement. Each major action typically includes multiple colored maps in chronological order that include the date and time of day, and each map is accompanied by supporting text on the opposite page. As a bonus, the order of battle is provided as well as casualties (using the best available information)--#killed, wounded, and missing--down to the regimental level for both sides. The organization of material, the size of the text, and the fonts used are excellent. The cover, binding, and pages are of much better than average quality for hard bound books.

If you want to immerse yourself into the gritty details and experience the sights, sounds, and smells of the battle, along with the feelings of frustration, anger, horror, and exhilaration of its participants, then you're better off reading Peter Cozzens' "This Terrible Sound: The Battle of Chickamauga." While that book does contain nicely detailed maps, there are far fewer of them, and they do not effectively detail the Tullahoma Campaign or the retreat after the battle.

If you want to get the full experience, get both, as I did. They complement each other almost perfectly. In addition to the numerous maps of this book, the accompanying text provides some additional details not found in Cozzens' book. I found that reading this book in phases, then catching up in Cozzens’ book, the best way to use them together.

Having said all that, the maps could have been better. I found the simple shading ineffective for the terrain/geography and vegetation, which played an important role in the battle. Additional details, such as the labeling of some of the roadways and inclusion of other key features, could have been better. I also caught some editing errors, e.g., regiments improperly identified two or three times (e.g., 100 IL in the text labeled as the 100 OH on the accompanying map). Finally, the price is a bit on the high side.

Overall, this book added greatly to my understanding of the battle, and I recommend it.

I have never been to Chickamagua and started out with "Bushwacking on a Grand Scale" to gain some basic information on the battle since I was a complete neophyte. I then dove into The Maps Of Chickamauga and now have a much better understanding of the battle, which in my opinion is one of the most difficult battles of the Civil War to follow due to the ebb and flow of the battle as well as the terrain. I need maps when reading about a battle and the more maps, the better I can understand what is going on. This book will be my companion when I am finally able to visit the battlefield. Next on my agenda is David Powell's "The Chickamauga Campaign - A Mad Irregular Battle" and I've already preordered his next book on Chickamauga.

I purchased "The Chickamauga Campaign" at the same time that I purchased this book. Having it was of significant help in the understanding of this very complex and confusing battle. I strongly recommend using these maps in conjunction with the Chickamauga Campaign books. The maps are very good. I would have liked to see a few more overview maps, however. I definitely recommend this book to aid in understanding this battle.

The Maps of Chickamauga is a very well done book which covers the Tullahoma campaign and the battle of Chickamauga itself. The maps and the opposite page accompanying text make each part of the campaign and battle easy to comprehend. The maps are well-rendered and easy to read, the text is clear and just detailed enough. And the map colors are gorgeous.

The introductory and post-battle material keeps both Tullahioma and Chickamauga in perspective. Finally, the orders of battle for both Tullahoma and Chickamauga and given down to regimental level.

I could pick some minor nits and possibly reduce the rating to 4.5 stars, but... . There are a few text references to other maps, and finding them can be a challenge without knowing the page number. One maptext title says Union loses Brotherton Field when they actually held on--but those are minor complaints, so the 5 stars stay.

I ordered this from the page describing the book. It is only a small part of the full book. Yes, the Kindle page reveals that, but the hardcover page does not--yet it offers the Kindle edition.

This book, as others in the series, is often recommended as a complement to other works and as a valuable reference book.. It is that, however, it also stands alone. For someone who is relatively unfamiliar with the Chickamauga Campaign, read this book first. The detailed color maps and facing page narration are unsurpassed. For further reading, the book contains an excellent bibliography. I highly recommend all books in the series and hope for more.

I got gypped. It didn't state that it was one tiny little section
It is important in military history books to have good maps, showing the locations of units in the chaotic swirl of battle. This book on a largely neglected campaign fill the bill admirably. It is a joy to be able to closely follow the narrative of the battles visually. The text is clear and well-written, and the maps are wonderful. A necessary book for history lovers, ACW enthusiasts, and wargamers.
