Summary
"On the morning of friday, June 3, 1864, Generals Ulysses S. Grant and George G. Meade brought their overland campaign against Richmond to its climax in an all-out assault on Robert E. Lee's entrenched rebels at Cold Harbor, less than ten miles outside the Confederate capital. The result was out-right slaughter -- Grant's worst defeat, and Lee's last great victory. Though Grant tried afterward to forget the battle, and historians have often misunderstood its importance, Cold Harbor remains what Bruce Catton called 'one of the hard and terrible names of the Civil War, perhaps the most terrible of all'". -- from fly leaf
Summary
Chronicles the bloody Battle of Cold Harbor, revealing Northern flaws and politics that led to Grant's worst defeat, private truces among soliders, and the beginnings of trench warfare as a military tactic
