Book Description:

Encompassed in this first of five planned volumes on the Vicksburg campaign are examinations of the pivotal events that comprised the campaign's initial stage, from March to May of 1863. The collection sheds new light on Ulysses S. Grant's formidable intelligence network of former slaves, Mississippi loyalists, and Union spies; his now-legendary tactics to deceive and confuse his Confederate counterparts; and his manoeuvres from the perspective of classic warfare.
