Ole, you mentioned studying the campaign, and, well, now, it got me thinking of a book that if you mention to most serious CW scholars, they'll turn up their noses and tell you to read Rhea - which I believe you've already done - but I feel compelled to mention one of my guilty pleasures:  Bloody Roads South - The Wilderness to Cold Harbor, May-June 1864, by Noah Andre Trudeau.  I picked it up at a garage sale a few years ago, and to me, it was a delightful read.  Someone else thought so, too, I guess;  it was "borrowed anonymously" from the workplace and never returned.

Most people I've talked with consider it lightweight, but I really did enjoy it.
