James Pickett Jones' "Yankee Blitzkrieg" is the only work in book form to treat Wilson's Raid in detail. It is primarily an operational history, focusing on the movements of brigades and divisions during the conduct of the great raid. There are enough recollections of lower-grade Union officers and enlisted men to give the feel of the action, from accounts of destroying factories to daring cavalry assaults on Confederate positions. "Yankee Blitzkrieg" is a well-written history of the Civil War's largest cavalry operation but it does suffer from a lack of detailed maps. Despite this drawback it remains a worthy addition to any Civil War buff's bookshelf, and is a highly informative account of Wilson's Raid.
A minor complaint: there isn't an order of battle for either side. I had to find a Union OB in Arnold's "Armies of US Grant". Also, in the Kindle edition, the maps are small and I have not figured out how to blow them up.
