Throughout America's tumultuous war against itself, no battle was as deadly or dramatic as Gettysburg. More lives were lost there than in any other war fought on American soil.
The last three decades have seen scores of remarkable new studies focusing on important elements of this monumental campaign. Now, acclaimed historian Noah Andre Trudeau brings the most up-to-date research available to a brilliant, sweeping, and comprehensive history that sheds new light on virtually every aspect of the battle of Gettysburg. Deftly balancing his own narrative style with revealing firsthand accounts, including excerpts from the diaries and letters of the men on both sides of the battlefield, Trudeau brings this engrossing human tale to life.
"[A] superb rendering of a signal episode in American history."
"Trudeau...again displays his ability to describe the hellish particulars of a battle without losing sight of the larger elements...shaping the collision of two armies.... GETTYSBURG is the best one-volume history of the decisive battle of the Civil War."
