New from Savas Beatie and the Emerging Civil War Series is “To Hazard All”: A Guide to the Maryland Campaign, 1862. Here’s the lowdown:

  • 169 pages of narrative, in seven chapters, from Lee’s move north after the Second Battle of Bull Run to his return to Virginia.
  • No addendums in this volume.
  • Five driving tour maps tied to the text: Confederates Enter Maryland; Federal Response; Harper’s Ferry; South Mountain; Return to Virginia. No tour for the Battle of Antietam, and while the texts for Harper’s Ferry and South Mountain run 32 pages, that for Antietam is half as long.
  • Nine additional troop movement maps.
  • No orders of battle, no index, no footnotes, no bibliography.
