Another book that is limited to Confederate officers is "Staff Officers in Gray: A Biographical Register of the Staff Officers in the Army of Northern Virginia" by Robert E. L. Krick, 2003, The University of North Carolina Press.

This book contains mini-biographies (very minimal, I might add) of 2,300 staff officers in the ANV. This list does not include surgeons, couriers or provost marshalls.There are two appendices that list without biographies) the names of 3000 staff officers who served in other Confederate armies. Appendix 2 limits itself to the ANV and goes general-by-general listing by name, rank  and position every staff officer ever known to have served with that general.

How I wish there were such a book for every army, both North and South. It would make a vital addition to the shelf of anyone who does research on the Civil WAr.
