The contributors to this volume assess the campaign from a variety of perspectives, examining strategy and tactics, the performances of key commanders on each side, the centrality of field fortifications, political repercussions in the United States and the Confederacy, the experiences of civilians caught in the path of the armies, and how the famous Battle of the Crater has resonated in historical memory. As a group the essays highlight the important connections between the home front and the battlefield, showing some of the ways in which military and nonmilitary affairs played off and influenced each other.
Contributors include Keith S. Bohannon, Stephen Cushman, M. Keith Harris, Robert E. L. Krick, Kevin M. Levin, Kathryn Shively Meier, Gordon C. Rhea, and Joan Waugh.

Needs a better narrator
I have read all of the CW books Gary Gallagher has edited and always find them a font of impressive information. This is the first time I've listened to one and the experience is terrible. The narrator's voice is grating, he distinctly pronounces each syllable as if English is his second language and is afraid of making a mistake. I'm going to have to get the hard copy.

.....but it is “cavalry” not Calvary. This is not a biblical account of the death of Jesus (Calvary).
That drove me nuts as half the time he would say cavalry and the other half Calvary.
The contents of the book are fantastic.
