Indispensible 1861 Material
Usually treated with a sentence or two in other works, this detailed study of the lead up and the battle itself is a treasure of previously neglected facts. So important in understanding the very nature of the difficulties facing both sides in 1861 at a whole, it is also the perfect introduction to the peninsula campaign that follows. A wonderful companion book to 'Yorktown's Civil War Siege' from the same series (Civil War Sesquicentennial Series). Buy both works and immense yourself in an orgy of fascinating historical data.
