What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

Given the volume of publications on Gettysburg, it is difficult to write something that is fresh and original on the battle. Earl Hess has succeeded in doing this. I have no doubt that this work will take its place as the new standard on Pickett's Charge.—D. Scott Hartwig, Historian, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
