Grierson's Raid
Dee Brown

Curtis Books, 1954

"The book treats Grierson's raid in its proper context - as part of the complicated military maneuverings that won Vicksburg - rather than as an isolated stunt. Unlike so many of the dashing cavalry adventures of the Civil War, this expedition really meant something. What it meant, how it came about, and what was going on elsewhere at the time, the author tells very clearly." - Bruce Catton
