Reviews

"A fine study, detailed and challenging, that complements such popular accounts of the battle as Bruce Catton's Glory Road and Shelby Foote's The Stars in Their Courses." Kirkus Reviews

"The book's strength is the consistent and striking characterizations of the many generals and commanding officers involved in the battle." Library Journal

"Readers thrilled by the minute details of battlefield maneuvers will be thoroughly engaged." Booklist, ALA

"Sears does much more than reconstruct events. He gives battlefield maneuvers deeper meaning and purpose because of his deep appreciation for context and the human dimension of history." --Peter Carmichael, American History Magazine

"[Sears gives] us a panoramic view, and in his vivid portrayal the day unfolds in all its horrible detail." --Jay Winik The New York Times Book Review

"A first-class writer and splendid historian--a combination to be cherished--gives us the best book on America's most famous battle." The Wall Street Journal
