Brandy Station 1863: First Step Towards Gettysburg. by Dan Beattie, Osprey Publishing. In 1863 Union Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker reformed the Army of the Potomac, including its long-maligned cavalry, which he molded into a corps under Brig. As with other books in Osprey’s Campaign series, Brandy Station provides a good perspective on the battle within the context of previous and subsequent events. The protagonists are comprehensively represented, though some may quibble over Dan Beattie’s omission of the death of Major John Pelham, commander of Stuart’s Flying Artillery, at Kelly’s Ford.

The battle showed both sides that the Federal cavalry had now come of age, that Blue and Gray horsemen were now equal in ability. Early in the morning on June 9, Pleasanton launched his men, split into two divisions, across the Rappahannock at Beverley's Ford to the north of Brandy Station and Kelly's Ford to the south. Stuart was caught completely unaware by these maneuvers and his lines and headquarters were nearly overrun until reinforcements helped to stabilize the situation. Following 12 hours of bitter fighting the Union forces withdrew back across the river, having matched the Confederate cavalry in skill and determination for the first time in the War between the States in what was the largest and most hotly contested clash of sabers in this long and bloody war.

This book describes the battle with a step-by-step analysis of the proceedings, illustrated with detailed maps, birds-eye-views and full color battlescene artwork.

This book shines as an excellent accounting of the Brandy Station battle. Unlike many of the Osprey battle series that only touch the surface of larger battles, perhaps because they are so complex, this format works really well for a battle of the Brandy Station scale. It provides appropriate detail at a regimental and brigade level that could not be achieved with other Osprey books such as their treatment of Fredericksburg for example. As a result it is much more than the 30,000ft overview with a couple of detailed cameos that you usually get from Osprey. It provides as much detail as most of us will ever need on this dramatic event. Having visited the battlefield the maps are an excellent resource. I did feel the authors were a little harsh on Stuart who after his initial setback appears to have handled the battle with his usual skill. Overall though, an excellent work.

I read this book and enjoyed it. Initially I got the review mixed up with the book about J&O Buford. I liked the Book The Devil's to pay better. But I am glad I bought this book as I am a student of the horse Cavalry.
