Hardcover with dust jacket, silver cloth with bright gilt spine titles, 16 by 23.5 cm, xiii 262 pp., illus. The hardcover is near fine but for some minor bumping at the head of the spine; the jacket is very good with light wear to the edges and a few tiny edge tears. From the front flap: “On April 6, 1865, General Robert E. Lee and his Confederate Army of Northern Virginia lost one of the more devastating – but forgotten – battles of the war. Along the banks of Sailor’s Creek, Virginia, blue and gray dueled in the last major clash before Lee’s surrender at Appomattox three days later. This is the saga of that tragic spring day at Sailor’s Creek where Lee exclaimed, ‘My God! Has the army dissolved?’ as he watched his shattered legions flee the battlefield.” And a back-cover blurb from John Michael Priest: “Derek Smith has filled a void in Civil War history with his vivid, flowing account of the battle of Sailor’s Creek. Rich in biography, and filled with excellent excerpts from the battle’s participants, it will serve for quite some time as the primer on this overlooked and unexplored action.”
