The Battle of Gettysburg has become the great "what if" of American history. Gettysburg unfolds an alternate path and creates for Gen. Robert E. Lee the victory he might have won. Full of dramatic battle scenes, military strategy, and captivating period details, Gettysburg stands as a remarkable entry in the pantheon of Civil War literature and as a vivid novel of the realities of war.

Since I am into Civil War books and have a small library, I found this book to be a great asset. A good example of how the battle would have gone if Lee had listen to the advice of his generals.

If you enjoy alternate history, or if you've studied the battle of Gettysburg and asked, "what if..," then you'll enjoy this book. Well researched, well thought-out, a solid story. I read this one and then had to continue through the next two in the series.

The Civil War is the American "Iliad". Lincoln, Stonewall Jackson, Grant, and Lee still stand as heroic ideals, as stirring to our national memory as were the legendary Achilles and Hector to the world of the ancient Greeks. Within the story our "Iliad", one battle stands forth above all others: Gettysburg.

Long winded, but interesting read

Too bad if Gingrich had his way there would still be slaves. Newt can kiss my ass! Not to mention, this book was ghost-written by his 'co-author', not by Newt.
