Book Review: Fields of Glory

Fields of Glory, A History and Tour Guide of the War in the West, The Atlanta Campaign, 1864
by Jim Miles.  Cumberland House Publishing Nashville Tenn.  2002

This has been my most used and trusted book for finding locations related to the Atlanta Campaign.  I love the way the chapters are set up.  One Chapter gives you a fairly good history of a section of the campaign and then the next chapter is a guided tour of that section.  The directions are good and detailed and I have not found any mistakes in the directions other than the mileage being off by a few 10th here and there, but not enough to matter.  I like the appendix as well.  They offer a few other tours and anecdotes of interest. 

I must give Jim Miles a great deal of thanks, because I am not sure I could have found all the locations that I needed to with out his book.  If you are looking at a driving tour in Georgia and want to visit some Civil War sites, then this is about the best book to use.  I highly recommend this book.
