Succinctly and elegantly written, this is the book to read if you are seeking an overview of the Battle of Gettysburg. One quibble with the paperback version: the resolution of the drawings is frustratingly subpar and the maps unreadable without a magnifying glass. Catton's brilliant prose more than makes up for these deficiencies. ( )

I recommend this book if you are going to visit the Gettysburg battlefield and don't know a lot of Civil War history.
The book is short, well written, has maps and interesting illustrations. I suggest that you read the book before you go and take the book with you on your trip. ( )
