Fields of Battle: Gettysburg (Fields Of Battle Series)

Fields of Battle: Gettysburg (Fields Of Battle Series)

by HughBicheno (Author)


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.'
