Professional reviews

"Stephen Sears, who has several other Civil War books to his credit, retells the story of Gettysburg, the largest battle of the war. His story not only encompasses the events of those fateful three days but also the entire campaign from the end of the Chancellorsville campaign to Lee's escape back across the Potomac. His analysis gives context to the battle, and it's refreshing to realize that the Yankees truly had something to do with the Confederate defeated. Sala's folksy voice is winsome. Slow and deliberate in delivery, he adroitly uses inflection and pauses to give an engaging performance. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine"
