I wrapped up work this week on the latest title in the Emerging Civil War book series and got it shipped off to the printer. No Turning Back: A Guide to the 1864 Overland Campaign by Robert “Bert” Dunkerly, Don Pfanz, and Dave Ruth follows in the footsteps of Ulysses S. Grant, from the banks of the Rapidan to the banks of the James, as he tries to get at, through, and around Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia.
As I followed along, I had the chance to do some battlefielding (always fun!) and take some pictures. In the book, the photos will appear in black and white, but here at the blog, I can offer you a full-color sneak peek.
Here are just a few of my discoveries from the stretch between the North Anna River and Cold Harbor.
Expect No Turning Back to hit bookstores by the end of April—just in time for the sesquicentennial of the Overland Campaign.
