Reviews
Wall Street Journal
"[Wheelan's] prose fairly gallops across the page."

Seattle Times
"Well-written, diligently researched, and highly readable"

Kirkus Reviews
"Well-researched and argued--a text that Civil War scholars and buffs will consume with glee."

Roanoke Times
"Entertaining and informative"

Civil War Roundtable of Washington, DC
"In clear, concise, journalistic prose, filled with energetic verbs and colorful adjectives, Wheelan vividly recreates those critical days that permanently turned the tide of the war in the East. [The author's] rock-solid research and instructive anecdotes put events and personalities into a context that brings clarity to the bloodiest spring of the war."

Blue & Gray Magazine, Vol. XXXI, #6
"The writing is crisp and flows; the narrative is detailed...A good introductory volume to the six weeks that were the beginning of the end of the Confederacy."
