Good in very good dust jacket. Ex-library. Sturdy binding; Top page block light foxing; Cloth and Paper over boards. 360 p. Audience: General/trade. Historical fiction recounting a Civil War tragic battle of July 1864. The Armies of the Potomac and of Northern Virginia led respectively by Grant and Lee, are locked in trench warfare. A plan is under way by the 48th Pennsylvania Volunteers to dig a 500-ft tunnel. The effort is stilled by cave-ins, floods, suffocation, and bungling army bureaucracy. Tragedy comes, founded in jealousies and racism. The result? Both Union and Confederate troops caused the massacre of the 4th Division U.S. "colored" troops. Historian Duane Schultz blends fact and fiction in a gripping tale.
