Very detailed history of an often overlooked and forgotten battle. Well researched and written with plenty of footnoted to back up the writing. I highly recommend this book. Look for the updated 2nd edition.

Very interesting. Of course, knowing my 2 great grand uncles were there made the book personal. Peter and Joseph Osier, R.I.P. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in the Civil War battles.

This highlights a part General Pickett's expedition to recapture New Bern, NC in Feb.1864. It covers only the advance by General James Martin's Confederate forces sent to capture Newport Barracks and cut off help going to New Bern. Unforunately what happened at New Bern was not entered into during this book. There are no maps of the area of the advance and none of the battle itself which would have helped in following the fighting. Also it was printed in large fonts and double spaced between the sentences. These things aside reading the accounts and the events were very good for such a small battle which ended in a Confederate tactical victory after the main expedition had failed. Eric Lindblade seems to have done a lot of research for this side battle of the New Bern expedition into the casualties for the 2 Feb 1864 for both sides and afterwards follow up. It would have been a much better book if he had covered the entire expedition to round out the book.
