Grant Rising : Mapping the Career of a Great Commander Through 1862 Hardback
by James Knight
Edited by Dana Lombardy
Illustrated by Hal Jesperen
Part of the Map Study Series series
Grant Rising is a remarkable reference book in colour maps and text of Ulysses S.
Grant's famous battles in 1862-including Donelson and Shiloh-and also his early life, including his frontier and Mexican War service-as well as his minor engagements in the Western Theater of the American Civil War.
Grant Rising features techniques that portray Civil War battles in a new way, such as shaded relief topography, giving the maps a three-dimensional appearance.
Plus the use of different color tints to represent command relationships makes it easier to determine which brigades reported to which divisions and corps at a glance.
Using slightly different shades of blue and red also allow for easy differentiation of many units on a single map, making the action easier to understand.
Grant Rising is a truly new type of map reference book as well as an inspired history of Grant's early life and career through 1862.
