Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich and veteran author William R. Forstchen combine their talents in this powerful and rousing alternate history of the most legendary Civil War clash.

After two days of brutal combat, Confederate General Robert E. Lee is faced with an agonizing decision. He can either launch a frontal assault directly at the center of Union lines, or he can flank the Federals and attack from the rear. Choosing the second option, Lee sends his troops around the Union army, cutting them off from Washington, D.C. and their supplies. Staring at the face of disaster, the Federals are forced into a desperate fight to survive.

Gettysbury is a fascinating what if? novel that faithfully brings to life the major players in America's greatest battle and places them in an entirely plausible scenario. Through Tom Stechschulte's stirring narration, listeners will marvel at what could have been. Download and start listening now!

    " Book was very interesting and believable for alternative history "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jeff | 9/23/2010

    " I got this book from the history section of the local library. IT IS A FICTION BOOK! Although it actually was fairly good reading, the author totally turned around events in the battle. In another words...Lee, Longstreet etc. defeats the Army of the Potomac in this account. "

    " Loved to learn about the war from Gingrich as he gave great perspective into the strategy of the generals and other leaders. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chuck | 4/1/2010

    " A historical novel that offers an alternative outcome, i.e., the C.S.A. wins The Battle of Gettysburg. This is the first of a trilogy and I have no idea where the authors are going with the story line but this is a real good stand alone tale. Realistic and believable.

    " A nice comfortable read. There is much respect for history is this fictionalized "what-could-have-happened" novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Al | 10/14/2009

    " I am not a fan of Newt Gingrich, but he is an excellent author. If you are a Civil War fan you will appreciate the detail in this alternate history novel. He tweeks the battle, but keeps an amazing amount of the story based on what really happened. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andy | 8/13/2009

    " Excellent alternate history of the pivotal battle of the Civil War. Fabulous treatment that does a great job of debunking the "if only, the war would've been over and the South would've won immediately" discussions that sometimes are heard here in the Southeast. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 7/6/2009

    " Fascinating depiction of how the Civil War was fought, at least around Gettysburg. It's really sad to remember as you read that the South didn't win this battle. Still a great read. "
