The Civil War historian "paints a fine-grained portrait of the decisive battle" in an "exhaustive, engrossing study" of each brigade unit's point of view (Publishers Weekly). In Brigades of Gettysburg, Civil War historian Bradley M. Gottfried offers an important new perspective on one of the most studied battles in American history. With extensive use of first-hand accounts from officers and enlisted men, Gottfried presents an on-the-ground view of the conflict from each Brigade unit involved. Brigades of Gettysburg is organized by order of battle and covers each brigade in scrupulous detail: where it fought, who commanded, who made up the unit, and how it performed in battle. "In vividly written narratives," Gottfried recreates the grueling conditions, personality conflicts, day-to-day tedium and horrific combat of this fateful three-day conflict. What emerges is "a perspective close to that of the soldiers, who had no grand overview to help them make sense of the unfolding battle" (Publishers Weekly).
