“Cutrer's work is an important addition to Civil War literature, with some interesting twists.”--America’s Civil War
“Cutrer has expertly written a compelling narrative that will become a standard source on the subject.”--Journal of the Civil War Era
“In a volume that matches the massive size and strategic importance of the Civil War’s trans-Mississippi, Thomas Cutrer goes beyond our usual understanding of that region by tracing the course of military operations from Missouri to California. In the process, his revealing narrative lays to rest any lingering impression of the West as a backwater of the war. A remarkable achievement in every respect.”--Daniel E. Sutherland, University of Arkansas
“Thomas Cutrer has done it again. Through an engaging, thoughtful, and impeccably researched narrative, Cutrer reminds readers of what many have missed by ignoring the Civil War in the trans-Mississippi West. Theater of a Separate War simultaneously informs and inspires future historians to continue to mine this rich area of study.”--Susannah J. Ural, University of Southern Mississippi
