"John Reeves illuminates The Battle of the Wilderness from fresh perspectives. His story personalizes the controversial and much-resented substitution policy in an especially compelling way."--Stephen Cushman, Professor of English at the University of Virginia, and author of Bloody Promenade: Reflections on a Civil War Battle

"John Reeves offers us an intimate portrait of the great Battle of the Wilderness that focuses on PEOPLE--their thoughts, hardships, heroics, and personal experiences--that is unlike any book previously published on the battle. His narrative is lively, scrupulously-researched, and filled with a pathos that is rare among writers of Civil War military history."--Christian B. Keller, PhD, author of The Great Partnership: Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and the Fate of the Confederacy

"With the absorbing narrative style that distinguished The Lost Indictment of Robert E. Lee, John Reeves hauntingly evokes the human drama of one of the Civil War's most horrific battles... Relating the story of this first clash between Lee and Grant from the perspective of both generals and foot soldiers, this is popular military history at its best."--Brian Matthew Jordan, Pulitzer Prize Finalist for Marching Home: Union Veterans and Their Unending Civil War --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
