    Review:

    "Just as the Battle of Gettysburg sprawls over three days, the Gettysburg battlefield sprawls over 25 square miles, which means that there’s no way to understand this climatic conflict without a good set of maps. This book meets people coming to the battlefield just where they are, with concise and uncluttered maps that clearly and accurately lay out the major movements down to brigade level, on an hour-by-hour basis, and with a straightforward and easily followed narrative of each map’s actions. Take it in the car, take it on foot, combine it with digital apps, or study it in advance--you will have the Battle of Gettysburg in easy grasp." (Allen C. Guelzo, author of Gettysburg: The Last Invasion 2013-03-18)

    "This map-supported narrative of the Battle of Gettysburg will appeal to neophyte and expert alike. The hour-by-hour maps of the maneuvering and fighting provide the clearest cartographic picture of the battle in existence. Of especial value is the integration of the cavalry fight east of Gettysburg on July 3 into the main battle story." (James M. McPherson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Battle Cry of Freedom 2013-03-05)

    "Gettysburg: The Story of the Battle with Maps is a unique exploration of the battle. The maps are very easy to follow. Each one shows the entire battlefield, making it possible to understand the context of each movement, attack, and counterattack during the three days. The accompanying text brings the battle alive and nicely compliments the maps." (D. Scott Hartwig, author of To Antietam Creek 2013-03-19)

    "Many attempts to depict the course of fighting on America’s most iconic battlefield are either so general as to be misleading, or so specific as to be incomprehensible. This cartographic display is a nice compromise. The movements are depicted clearly, and in full color, so that even a complete newcomer to the battle can follow the action easily." (Craig L. Symonds, author of The American Heritage History of the Battle of Gettysburg 2013-03-11)
