Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This brief study, designed as an illustrated overview of the campaign, examines in some detail various battles around Atlanta, such as Allatoona Pass, through the fall of Savannah"- Ted Alexander, Blue & Gray Magazine (Holiday 2007)

"Along with an excellent choice of period photographsd and the superb artwork maps of Richard Hook, the story of this pivotal campaign and the major battles therein are brought to life. It is another superb Osprey work and one that I know you will find as enjoyable and interesting as did I." -Scott Van Aken, modelingmadness.com
