GOUGH (Col. J.E., VC, CMG) Fredericksburg & Chancellorsville: A Study of the Federal Operations. Intro. by Brig. H.H. Wilson, CB. DSO. 1st Ed., xvi+285pp., 17 fldg. maps (2 in end-pocket). Hugh Rees. 1913  #53663
[HLMainPic] Rare, informed study, based on Gough's battlefield tour that he undertook while on leave & presented as a series of lectures to the Staff College in 1912. Brother of Hubert, Johnnie Gough was Haig's chief of staff 1914-15. He had won his VC in Somaliland & was unfortunately killed early in 1915 on the eve of taking over command of a division. One of the 'what ifs' of the Great War as he was a very highly regarded officer who took his profession seriously & was destined for high command. Interesting that he chose the somewhat controversial Henry Wilson to contribute the Introduction. Orig. red cloth, gilt, sp. sl. sunned o/w VG. See illustration on our websiite.   £75
