Army of the Potomac OB
Darrell Collins has authored some nice studies in the cavalry raid and biographical arenas, but his next book is a pretty ambitious reference tome. The Army of the Potomac: Order of Battle, 1861-1865, with Commanders, Strengths, Losses and More will be published by McFarland this summer. It "compiles information from the Official Records to give a complete look at the numbers behind every battle and major campaign the Army of the Potomac participated in. Organized chronologically by battle, the numbers are broken down by corps, divisions, brigades and regiments. The data include commander’s names down to the regimental level, unit strengths, casualties and losses."
