Joe Johnston,facing overwhelming odds in the West,chose a "by-the-book"  strategy. General Lee,faced with overwhelming odds in the East,took great chances which he saw as necessity. I think Stonewall Jackson's proposal of smaller,more mobile rebel armies making quick strikes could have been very successful. The Western rebel armies,though equallly good fighters as their Eastern brothers,were doomed to inconsistent leadership at the top level. badger
