I generally fall on the pro-Johnston side -- not heavily, mind you, but with a bit more favor than disfavor. He wasn't as loony as Bragg, and he wasn't as careless with his army as was Hood. His was not an easy place to be in -- Grant, Sherman, and a uniquely qualified CnC on one side; Davis, the Confederate Congress, and fractious governors on the other.

It wasn't that Johnston was not competent, it's that his opposition was more competent.
