Excellent overview of Gettysburg
Reviewed in the United States on May 3, 2017
I read Stephen Sears "Gettysburg" after reading Noah Trudeau's "Gettysburg - A Testing of Courage"; I wanted to see how the authors agreed and differed on this turning point of the Civil War. Sears met my expectations of learning even more about this battle and provided me with even more curiosity about what happened in this small town in the summer of 1863. I enjoyed the pictures and drawings, missing in Trudeau's work, that provided more context to the story although I felt the maps in Trudeau's book were more informative. Anyone wishing to delve deep into the study of the battles at Gettysburg would do well to read Sears excellent book.
