ECW Series: “Simply Murder” by Chris Mackowski and Kristopher D. White
A paperback is not going to hold up well on a battlefield, especially in the heat of summer. In addition the concise nature of the book means the number of maps is less than ideal for a battlefield tramper. What if a battlefield tramper is trying to identify where a regiment in one of the other assaults moved to the attack? The GPS coordinates along with instructions on how to get from one interesting point to another paired with background information was welcome information.
Buy this book for the concise overview it will give you if you are new to the Battle of Fredericksburg, not as a battlefield companion. I noticed too many small editing errors, at least ten in number. This is a minor complaint, and I have every reason to believe that the editing will be tightened up for the next book in the series. First, the book is absolutely jam-packed with photos and other illustrations of the people, places, and events which featured heavily in the Fredericksburg Campaign. When a book averages more than one image per page, you know the series is serious about drawing readers in visually as well as with the text.

The maps do a great job of giving readers a good idea of the terrain faced by both sides in this fight. Some of the maps even go down to regimental level.
Short entries on visiting the battlefield end each chapter, tying modern day directions to text about historical events. The book features no notes, an interesting decision.

Simply Murder features a large number of pages devoted to appendices covering topics other than the strictly military history overview contained in the main chapters. In a page book, the appendices already start on page , and they are chock full of interesting information. Appendix B gives readers an idea of the history of the city of Fredericksburg before, during, and after the war.
It took the town more than a century to fully recover from the damage done to it from Appendix C examines civilians and their experiences in one of the few cases of urban warfare in the Civil War. Appendix D looks at slavery and its ties to Fredericksburg. Union soldiers preferred to forget the bloodbath on the Rappahannock, and the town soon devoured the Federal areas of the battlefield right up to the stone wall.

Thanks for the kind words about the book! It's of course impossible to truly understand a battle unless you understand the ground, so we hope the book will serve as a valuable companion for anyone who walks Fredericksburg.

However, we also hope it gives folks who CAN'T visit the battlefield a clear glimpse of what they'd see and experience if they were to visit. We have several more titles already in the works, which we're really excited about! Have you heard of any upcoming titles from the This Hallowed Ground Series? No, and your question prompted me to revisit its webpage and I can't believe how long it's been since the last one was published [although huge gaps between books is the established pattern 2 in , 3 more , then ].
