Osprey Graphic History 12 : Deadly Inferno : Battle of the Wilderness

'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 Ulysses 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. Text by Dan Abnett with illustrations by Wayne Van Sant and Dheeraj Verma.
