    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookIf like me you have read books on the battle of Gettysburg but still have no real idea of how the battle unfolded on the map this is the book for youI often find it difficult to follow the flow of AAR's I struggle to picture in my mind's eye the movement of units and the terrain they occupy in relation to other units Thus this is the kind of book I've always wanted

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookOK so I want to hasten to assure youI don't go all five star gushy at just anything I read and in fact it takes something pretty amazing at least to me to get the Flag of Five That said you will not find a interesting and cogent description of the Battle of Gettysburg in July of 1863 Oh there are a ton of books out there and I've read a lot of them trying to make sense of the sense of the battle but all those units and all those places on the battlefield and all those names both blue and gray Well no matter how much I concentrat


  3. Clark Clark says:

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookThis is a superb book and offers an exceptionally cogent narrative of the battle Unfortunately fairly heavy on typographical errors however Every other page is a full page full color map and the page next to it is narrative text and explanation Each subseuent page details the next hour or two of the battle over the entire range of events from Buford's first encounter July 1 early morning to Pickett's charge July 3 late afternoon The layout is simple but profoundly effective The graphics are superb Details hour by hour location of Lee and Meade as well Includes a pretty good bibliography too Highly recommended If only it were a whole series with every major Civil War battle That would be great

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookAnyone who wants a play by play layout of the entire battlefield should read this book It really made the battle come to life for me and helped me better understand how and why it played out the way it did My only complaint is that it seemed very one sided in that it deliberately berated Longstreet Ewell and Sickles and kept Lee above reproach My opinion on this matter does matter but I was upset at the way the narrative was written in an unfair manner Only reason I would give it a 4 star rating instead of 5


  5. Thomas Falk Thomas Falk says:

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookI gave this book a top rating based on its excellent use of maps and map segments to illustrate the seuence of events for the 3 day battleHowever I found the sentence structure used by the authors in the descriptive text to be freuently confusing

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookIf you enjoy looking at maps and getting a sense of the Battle of Gettysburg with a strong focus on possibility and the visual representation of the friction of war this is definitely a worthwhile book  Of course I am no stranger to reading books about the Battle of Gettysburg 1 and this book definitely delivers a compelling picture of the tension and sense of possibility that existed in the Battle of Gettysburg and how the initial timing of the battle influenced the course of the rest of the battle in subtle ways  There is a lot to like about this book to be sure it is a short guide and does not include as much text as many other books would include but all the same it is the sort of book that can greatly help a student of the Battle of Gettysburg get a sense of the importance of both timing and terrain in the course of th

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookBy far the best set of maps and accompanying text I've read about Gettysburg or really any battle The narration which seems like it could have used one last proofreading pass for narrative clarity—my only criticism nevertheless is wonderful and works hand in hand with the maps to provide almost a guided tour of the

    Gettysburg eBook ê Paperback gettysburg kindle, Gettysburg eBookThe only reason this gets than one star is the maps which are really goodOther than that it is a very biased and in my opinion faulty presentation of the battle with usual lost cause arguments against longstreet and nothing critical againsts leeIf you've only read this book it would seem Lee 'the gray white ramrod straight gentlemanly living legend in the saddle beside him' I almost puked reading this was a godlike tactical genius not capable of making a mistake with his subordinates doing his best to make him lose this battle at whose front is the LuciLongstreet himself
