Cold Harbor, Grant and Lee, May 26–June 3, 1864

History - 2007-04-01

Here, Grant is not a callous butcher, and Lee does not wage a perfect fight. Within the pages of Cold Harbor, Rhea separates fact from fiction in a charged, evocative narrative.

About this book
Gordon Rhea's gripping fourth volume on the spring 1864 campaign-which pitted Ulysses S. Grant against Robert E. Lee for the first time in the Civil War-vividly re-creates the battles and maneuvers from the stalemate on the North Anna River through the Cold Harbor offensive. Cold Harbor: Grant and Lee, May 26-June 3, 1864 showcases Rhea's tenacious research which elicits stunning new facts from the records of a phase oddly ignored or mythologized by historians. In clear and profuse tactical detail, Rhea tracks the remarkable events of those nine days, giving a surprising new interpretation of the famous battle that left seven thousand Union casualties and only fifteen hundred Confederate dead or wounded. Here, Grant is not a callous butcher, and Lee does not wage a perfect fight. Within the pages of Cold Harbor, Rhea separates fact from fiction in a charged, evocative narrative. He leaves readers under a moonless sky, with Grant pondering the eastward course of the James River fifteen miles south of the encamped armies.

About this book
When June Cameron and Paul Holsinger set out in 1983 in Paul's ancient 26-foot wooden sloop, "Wood Duck," to cross the perilous Hecate Strait and explore the weather-beaten west coast of the Queen Charlotte Islands (now known as Haida Gwaii), they knew they would face danger. But June had raced her own sailboat for years and Paul was a gifted mechanic, so they put trepidation aside and answered the call to adventure. Their journey taught them much about the challenges faced by the area's First Nations inhabitants--and much about why skippers do not sail the outer coast of the Charlottes for pleasure. There are no lighthouses, and many rocks and reefs are uncharted. June and Paul's survival would depend on cautious, observant navigation--and luck. "26 Feet to the Charlottes" takes readers to remote beaches, uninhabited First Nations villages, abandoned mines and sheltered coves. Compelling reading for sailors and armchair adventurers alike, June's story conveys the joys and challenges of travelling by boat and living off the sea, and recalls a coast that has changed dramatically in the last century.

    If you want to learn the story of the `other side of the hill' during the Normandy Campaign of 1944, then this book is for you!

    This superb account of German operations in Normandy June-July 1944 is drawn from the captured German Seventh Army War Diary. This is not a reprise of tactical operations in Normandy, rather it details those issues and operations viewed as most important from the German perspective at army level. In providing this record of that Army's daily activities Lt. Col. Reardon adds to the growing list of operational studies on the German army's struggle in during the Normandy Campaign in summer 1944 and highlights the tensions between Seventh Army opposing the US First Army and Panzer Group West fighting the British Second Army.Reardon's methodology is excellent: opening each chapter with very comprehensive editor's notes as well as material from the Army's higher headquarters to provide context before delving into the Seventh Army's War Diary. The appendix on Luftwaffe operations over Normandy is a tour de force that could be a study in itself.I found numerous... 5/5 Robert S. Rush (Stafford, Virginia) - See all my reviews, July 8, 2012

    A Valuable Reference for World War II Europe Readers and Historians

    In his latest book "Defending Fortress Europe" (2012) U.S. Army Historian and published author Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Mark Reardon, of the U.S. Army's Center of Military History has provided readers and historians alike with a valuable and enduring reference. An authority on World War II, Reardon is the author of "Victory at Mortain" (2002) and coauthor of "American Iliad: The History of the 18th Infantry Regiment in World War II" (2004). Lieutenant Colonel Reardon has carefully and skillfully edited the War Diary of the German Seventh Army in Normandy for the period 6 June to 26 July to present the epic Battle of Normandy as the leaders of the Wehrmacht lived and perceived it. "Defending Fortress Europe" provides considerable insight into how a German Army of 58 divisions, expecting an Allied invasion of France and equipped with thousands of tanks and self-propelled guns, anti-tank guns and artillery pieces, was not only unable to prevent the Allies from establishing a... 5/5 Gilberto Villahermosa (Greater New York Area) - See all my reviews This review is from: Defending Fortress Europe: The War Diary of the German 7th Army, 6 June-26 July 1944 (Paperback) In his latest book "Defending Fortress Europe" (2012) U.S. Army Historian and published author Lieutenant Colonel (Retired) Mark Reardon, of the U.S. Army's Center of Military History has provided readers and historians alike with a valuable and enduring reference.

    A fine continuation of a top-notch history

    I suppose that the most fitting summation of the merits of Gordon Rhea's "Cold Harbor" that I can give would be to simply state that it fully meets the standards established by its predecessors. Rhea has already published three outstanding volumes about the 1864 Overland Campaign waged between Grant and Lee. The present volume wholly lives up to the promise of those earlier books. Despite the complexity of the events described, Rhea's narrative is clear and compelling, and I have gained an understanding of the what's and why's of the Cold Harbor battle that far surpasses anything before.Rhea challenges several popular misconceptions about the battle, especially regarding the famous, ill-fated grand attack of June 3rd. Although in recent years understanding has grown amongst specialist military historians that the image of a hugely costly and essentially unprecedented sacrifice of attacking troops was much more a product of myth rather than fact (Rhea concludes that Pickett's... 5/5 Bruce Trinque (Amston, CT United States) - See all my reviews, August 24, 2002

    Cold Harbor as campaign history...

    Most contemporary histories of the Civil War cover the 1864 Overland Campaign as a series of maneuvers from the Rapidan river ultimately to Appomattox with emphasis on the major battles fought at the Wilderness, Spotsylvania, North Anna River, Cold Harbor and the siege at Petersburg. Little is publicized concerning the planning and marches to and from these prestigous battlefields, until Gordon Rhea's study of this series of battles. In Cold Harbor, Rhea's latest in this series, he comes clean with the details of the maneuvers from the North Anna river to Cold Harbor and the ensuing battles on June 1st and 3rd, 1864. By providing such a complete and comprehensive campaign history, Rhea sacrifices (in my opinion) some of his previous improvements in "readability" and essentially redefines what a "campaign history" reads like.Even though this period does encompass a significant amount of maneuvering, cavalry battles, small infantry engagements and... 4/5 Thomas Moody - See all my reviews, June 25, 2003
