An excellent book. Philbrick writes in a clear and straightforward style, and makes well-reasoned arguments about the battle even when trying to reconcile conflicting reports about what actually happened. He deftly manages to avoid the pitfalls of excessive political correctness. There are good photographs and copious notes. And there are wonderful detailed maps that make the progression of events much easier to understand.
