Though the opportunity to develop  high level officers is less, wouldn't that mean you would not spread so thin your officer corps, in effect streamlining it and making it more effective?

Your point is well taken, Orphan, and your corollary is sound. It would seem, however, that a streamlined officer corps failed Davis when it came time to replace JEJ. And it doesn't approach the argument of fleet and smooth unit movements, logistics, supply, and so on.

Will make it a point of looking up that book. If it isn't in my "Atlanta" stack, then I won't find it soon. It was a book of 7 or 8 essays having to do with that campaign.
