The Horrid Pit

PDF EBook by Alan Axelrod

EBook Description

This is another focused part of the Civil War (in this case Petersburg) that might be geared more towards developed interest or “buff’s” to a degree. The Horrid Pit PDF EBook The story is intriguing and well worth reading – as this a part of history less told compared to others during the war. You can almost see it being a movie (actually the start of cold mountain gave some insight – but then a terrible movie commenced – I digress). The idea, engineering, risks involved, tragic execution – it has all the components. The basic premise is – build a tunnel underground – breach beneath enemy lines – house a significant explosive depot / mechanism under their encampments – blow it and the surrounding area – coordinate an attack into enemy lines at the same time. You get to see a bit of evolution in war strategy and tactics that began to creep in towards the end of the Civil War. The idea may have been bizarre and haphazard – but it shows you how engineering began to play a big role (also when you consider trench warfare compared to old military approach). For those who understand some of the struggles the Union had with commanders and leadership – you will appreciate some of the ineptness involved on that level. I think it is good book to read.
