Great read and timely as we approach the 150th anniversary of the end of the war. Burke Davis weaves together his narrative with the recollections and experiences of the original participants from both sides as the Grey and the Blue move the war finally away from Richmond and the Petersburg trenches. A number of fascinating vignettes offering intriguing insights into the background of the war, a number of the wars most important participants, and the complicated process of ending a war. The book is slightly dated in that we now know a number of things about the individuals mentioned in the book that neither Burke Davis nor many of the original participants knew - for example, that President Jefferson Davis household staff in the Confederate White House in Richmond reportedly included a couple of Northern spies.

This ones earned a place on my overcrowded and creaking shelves. Davis included a nine page bibliography and several maps (which unfortunately do not fare well as reduced for the mass market paperback edition).
