'The Wilderness' encompassed a 70-square-mile expanse of virtually impenetrable woodland in central Virginia, so dense it made conventional warfare impossible. The first battle, of Lieutenant General Ulyysses S Grant's 1864 Overland Campaign against the Army of Northern Virginia, the Wilderness witnessed some of the fiercest fighting of the Civil War. Though outnumbered, General Lee's forces posed stiff resistance to Grant's offensive. At the end of the three-day battle, the outcome was uncertain, and the fight ended in a draw. Brilliantly illustrating one of the American Civil War's most tactically challenging battles, this comic strip narrative brings to life a completely new type of warfare; the likes of which had never been fought before on American soil.
"In all, it is a book that both young and old will enjoy reading as it gives that bit of extra interest in portraying the events in a graphic method. One that I know you will like as I found it to be superb reading." -Scott Van Aken, "modelingmadness.com "(August 2007)
