Not War But Murder: Cold Harbor 1864, by Ernest B. Furgurson. Examines the Union attack on the Confederate entrenchments at Cold Harbor, Virginia on June 3, 1864. Instead of breaking through to Richmond, the reinforced Army of the Potomac lost over 10,000 men, most of them in a single morning. Confederates called it the easiest victory of the war. In the North, it confirmed Grant's reputation as a butcher, heedless of casualties. (328 pages, 8 x 5.25, Paperback)
