(4.5 stars; 8 reviews)

In the American Civil War the Union victory in the ten-month campaign for the city of Petersburg, Virginia (June 1864-March 1865), led directly to the surrender of the Confederacy within two weeks. This 1970 National Park Service booklet tells the story of the campaign. It focuses on the meaning of the campaign and the experience of the soldiers of both sides, with a minimum of references to military units. The listener to this Librivox recording may want to view the printed booklet for excellent maps and revealing photographs. - Summary by david wales (1 hr 24 min)
