Utilizing a vast array of unpublished letters, diaries, and memoirs and published regimental histories, Jeffry Wert has written a path-breaking study of the crucial 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. In vivid detail he describes the battles of Third Winchester, Fisher’s Hill, and Cedar Creek, Union victories that insured the re-election of Abraham Lincoln. Wert’s book is the first modern work on the campaign and captures the drama, the terrible nature of Civil War combat, and the suffering of Valley residents in a compelling and graphic narrative.
