    1. Imagine my surprise when this book didn't end with Lee's surrender After I got over my disbelief, and wondered why the hell I had just read over 200 pages devoted to a stalemate campaign, I realized a few things: I find people enchanted with the Grant-Lee dual slightly strange, my professor could have made me read a book about a much more fruitful campaign of the end of the Civil War era (although I understand the losses and overall brutal nature of this one are significant), and I really really [...]


    2. This is the first Civil War book I've read start to finish, I think. I appreciated the analysis of Lee and Grant's generalship, and the discussion of the Overland operation's significance to the war. I also appreciated the segments on how the campaign was reported, about medical care and burials during the campaign (what little there was of those at the time).I struggled through the chapters on the Wilderness, Spotsylvania and Cold Harbor, but this is hardly unique. I usually find it tough to re [...]


    3. A really good one volume description of the Overland Campaign. It's a good level of detail. A few more anecdotes would have been nice, but it doesn't get bogged down in needless details. The maps were adequate, although there is room for improvement.


    4. A well-written, concise, but complete summary of a little-studied aspect of the civil war. Not as comprehensive as, say, Noah Andre Trudeau's "Bloody Roads South" but it packs a lot of information into a brief and readable format.
