Yet another name belongs on that infamous list: Stones River, the setting for Peter Cozzens's No Better Place to Die. It was here that both the Union and Confederate armies lost over one-quarter of their forces in battle casualties. In the 126 years since the guns fell silent at Stones River, few books have examined the bloody clash and its impact on the war's subsequent outcome. No Better Place to Die recounts the events and strategies that brought the two armies to the banks of this central Tennessee river on December 31, 1862. Cozzens re-creates the battle itself, following the movements and performance of individual regiments.

Stones River is not the best known battle of the Civil War, but it was a very important one. The Confederates launched a surprise attack on Union forces in Tennessee that nearly succeeded in breaking the army. It was a battle that made reputations for men like Pat Cleburne and Phil Sheridan for the tenacity of their fighting. ksmyth, October 15, 2005.

A well researched and written book. I learned a great deal about the common soldiers and small unit morale. The interplay of the major actors is also well presented.

My only complaint is the coordination between text and otherwise excellent maps. The text will make references to locations ('round forest', Widow Burns house, various roads, etc) that are not labeled on the map. Many units in the text are referred to by their commanders, but when you go to the map the identification is by unit designation. Frantic flipping back and forth to other maps or the appendix results. I'd rather have a 'cluttered map' than the frustration of page flipping.

I have read all three of Cozzens books about the Stones River, Chickamauga, and Chattanooga campaigns.

The from the boredom of camp life to the smoke and confusion of battle, He does a great job of capturing the confusion and tragedy of the battles as they happened. I have visited Chicamauga Battlefield, and I believe that Cozzens books, along with David Powell ' s "Maps of Chicamauga" provide the three quinticential tools the modern reader must have to grasp the essence and meaning of this Civil War Campaign.

Foot soldiers and cavalry fought hard.. It was the generals whose ego ran the battles instead of doing there jobs-leading there men. Many battles were lost due generals delays,working against each other and ego.

2nd book I've read on Stonesriver, this one gives a bit more on smaller unit contacts within the battle... Flows and reads well.. solidly recommend...

I found this to be a very wonderful book on the battle of stones river. I have read Cozzens other books. I found some them very dry and very hard to read but not this one. I read the book in three days and like I said it is a very good account of the battle.
Dianantrius
Great source for battle with few. Also, book is excellent for one of my major complaints-MAPS!. This book shows many almost hourly positions during battle.

Excellent!
It is a well researched book that needs more present day recognition. If the North hadn't won this battle - Illinois and Indiana were on the verge of quitting the war and making peace. President Lincoln needed this victory in order to bolster the Union to forge on and win the whole war. A pivotal moment in U. S. history.
