A fascinating narrative and a bold new thesis in the study of the Civil War that suggests Robert E. Lee had a heretofore undiscovered strategy at Gettysburg that, if successful, could have crushed the Union forces and changed the outcome of the war. The Battle of Gettysburg is the pivotal moment when the Union forces repelled perhaps America’s greatest commander—the brilliant Robert E. Lee, who had already thrashed a long line of Federal opponents, just as he was poised at the back door of Washington, D.C. It is the moment in which the fortunes of Lee, Lincoln, the Confederacy, and the Union hung precariously in the balance.

    " An interesting book and argument. This adds to the books on how Lee "failed" at Gettysburg. It is now Stuart's fault (not Longstreet or Ewell) and Custer's triumph. This will be added to my list of books I want to talk to the author about over a beer. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Clay Davis | 5/5/2011

    " A very in depth account about the Battle of Gettysburg. I learned for the first time about Custer being at the battle and how he helped win it. "

    " Perfect read for us Civil War buffs with a great twist on how and why the Union prevailed at Gettysburg......Custer (?) "
