9780312342999: Never Call Retreat: Lee and Grant: The Final Victory: A Novel of the Civil War (Gettysburg)

New York Times bestselling authors Newt Gingrich and William R. Forstchen conclude their inventive trilogy with this remarkable answer to the great "what-if" of the American Civil War: Could the South have won?

After his great victories at Gettysburg and Union Mills, General Robert E. Lee's attempt to bring the war to a final conclusion by attacking Washington, D.C., fails. However, in securing Washington, the remnants of the valiant Union Army of the Potomac are trapped and destroyed. For Lincoln, there is only one hope left, that General Ulysses S. Grant can save the Union cause.
It is now August 22, 1863. Pursuing the Union troops up to the banks of the Susquehanna, Lee is caught off balance when news arrives that Grant, in command of over seventy thousand men, has crossed that same river. As General Grant brings his Army of the Susquehanna into Maryland, Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia maneuvers for position. The two armies finally collide in Central Maryland and a bloody weeklong battle ensues along the banks of Monocacy Creek. This must be "the final" battle for both sides.
In Never Call Retreat, Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen bring all of their now critically acclaimed talents to bear in what is destined to become an immediate classic.

With each book in their ongoing alternate history cycle, Gingrich and Forstchen have gone from strength to strength as storytellers.... It has passages of genuine depth and poetry which elevate it above many other specimens of its peculiar subgenre."
---William Trotter, The Charlotte Observer
