Worth the price for the cover.

I am a big fan of war comics, and have been excited to see Osprey's recent output. The cover is by noted war artist Wayne Vansant and is the best thing about the book. It would be good for kids interested in the war or the battle, but for serious Civil War buffs or war comic collectors it left something to be desired. I would tell my fellow collectors to get the book, but just to support the line and the great cover artist ( who should be doing all the art ).

Product Overview

'The Wilderness' encompassed a 70-square-mile expanse of virtually impenetrable woodland in central Virginia, so dense it made conventional warfare impossible. The first battle of Lieutenant General Ulysses S. Grant's 1864 Overland Campaign against the Army of Northern Virginia, the Wilderness witnessed some of the fiercest fighting of the Civil War. Though outnumbered, General Lee's forces posed stiff resistance to Grant's offensive. At the end of the three day battle, the outcome was uncertain, and the fight ended in a draw. Brilliantly illustrating one of the American Civil War's most tactically challenging battles, this comic strip narrative brings to life a completely new type of warfare; the likes of which had never been fought before on American soil.
