This is a very detailed history (ala Peter Cozzens) of the Seven Days Battles, something that I think had not been written before. I don't think this was as good as Stephen Sears' broader "To The Gates Of Richmond" (which also covers the Peninsular Campaign as a whole) nor as quite as good as Cozzens' books. There are quite a few maps, but I feel they are not good. Overall, an okay book.
