Just finished reading a great new book, "Trench Warfare under Grant & Lee:  Field Fortifications in the Overland Campaign," by Earl J. Hess.  It covers eveything in the campaign from the Wilderness to Cold Harbor and Bermuda Hundred with the focus on engineering.  Contains a number of good diagrams of earth and log fortifications used during the campaign based on field studies plus a number of photographs of same that I don't recall seeing before.

I thought this book was nicely done.
