JAMES M. MCPHERSON
Author of Battle Cry of Freedom Remarkable . . . A book that changed my life . . . I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive.
Filmmaker, The Civil War
Shaara carries [the reader] swiftly and dramatically to a climax as exciting as if it were being heard for the first time.
The Seattle Times General John Buford This book is about the battle of Gettysburg which took place during the American civil war. The book is not only about the four bloody days but events that happened before that. It gives you a good idea of what challenges generals had to deal with. It describes the what happened on both sides. The book helps understand what happened and what went through generals heads. The main characters are all the generals. Michael Shaara is able to capture how things were during the Civil War. The book also gives you a feel for some of the important characters of the battle, including Lee, Longstreet, Pickett, Buford, and Hancock. It also goes into detail about soldier’s everyday life and what the battle field was like. Or things like what was the deal with the 20th main, what happened at little round top, how did the Buford’s line hold up, or why some generals gave certain orders. It does go in a lot of detail.
