"This book explores the defensive Civil War constructs of the Mississippi River valley, focusing on Vicksburg, which boasted a network of forts, rifle pits, and cannon embrasures. Also examined are numerous other strongholds, including New Orleans, Port Hudson, New Madrid, and forts Henry and Donelson. A section titled ‘Visiting the Forts Today’ is included." -Laura O. Wilson, Missouri Historical Review (July 2008)

"… this worthwhile review of an important topic is valuable for anyone interested in 19th century fortifications." -Bolling Smith, Coastal Defense Journal (February 2008)

"Ron Field’s American Civil War Fortifications (3): The Mississippi and River Forts narrows the focus to Confederate fortifications tested during the long Federal campaign of 1862-63. Major sites of such fortification are surveyed for their military impact." -The California Bookwatch (January 2008)

"The information on some of these lesser known fortifications and the guide value to Vicksburg certainly make this book a useful addition along with the author’s other volume on Civil War fortifications." -J.E. Kaufmann, SITEO Newsletter (December 2007)

"This book by Ron Field is an outstanding addition to the Fortress series and one that no student of the genre should be without." -Scott Van Aken, (November 2007)
