If you locate a report on a military unit of interest, you will likely be very pleasantly surprised. The one I examined was approximately 100 pages long, with multiple maps to help tell the story.
Note: Since these are unit reports, it is unlikely that a particular enlisted man will be mentioned by name unless he performed one or more medal-worthy actions during that campaign.
