This is the same author who wrote the final essay in Gary Gallagher's book of essays on "The Third Day at Gettysburg and Beyond"; his essay is on Meade's pursuit of Lee - a subject covered in far more detail in Eric Wittenberg's "One Continuous Fight".I just completed Gordon Rhea's final volume of the Overland Campaign titled On to Petersburg: Grant and Lee June 4 - 15, 1864. I have owned the book for a while but hadn't had the opportunity to read it. It was as well done as the other books in the series. Next on the CW reading list is A Campaign of Giants: The Battle for Petersburg Volume One From the Crossing of the James to the Crater.

I look forward to your comments on this book. I watched one of his CSPAN videos recently and the book seemed very interesting.Just picked up "The War For The Common Soldier", by Peter S. Carmichael, an account of "how men thought, fought, and survived in Civil War armies". I think it will be a very good read.
