Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0304356980, Paperback)

This gripping narrative history, drawing upon primary sources and brimming with rare illustrations and informative maps, catapults you behind the lines at Gettysburg. From the strategic reasons for Lee's invasion to the culminating tragedy of Pickett's Charge, in which grossly outnumbered Confederate troops withstood a blistering barrage of artillery before finally being repulsed, every aspect, military rationale, and personality is explored. A must for Civil War buffs, this original account sheds new insights on the battle that changed American history.

"Hugh Bicheno's compelling and original account is an important re-examination of the bloodiest battle ever fought on North American soil. With meticulous attention to detail, the author clearly and concisely revisits every aspect of the battle, from the strategic reasons for Lee's invasion of the North to the desperate fight for Little Round Top and the culminating tragedy of Pickett's Charge. The result is, in the words of the Fields of Battle series editor Professor Richard Holmes, 'a seriously good book, by far the best thing written on the subject to date'."--Back cover.… (more)
