Lee's Last Campaign: The Story of Lee and His Men Against Grant, 1864
No history is more beautifully written than this one covering General Robert E. Lee's last campaign with the Army of Northern Virginia from early May to mid-June of 1864. Here the aging Lee is shown improvising strategy with a brilliance that cannot reduce the hopelessness of his situation. With the ghost of a once great army, he is caught between the overwhelming might of the Union forces and the crippling restrictions of his own government.
