Staff Pick

I have read this excellent book three times. Using original material, Stephen W. Sears shows how the often-overlooked Battle of Antietam/Sharpsburg helped change the course of the Civil War and slavery in America.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The death count from the Battle of Antietam was the largest of any single battle in American history. Landscape Turned Red, winner of the Fletcher Platt Award for best non-fiction book about the American Civil War, is the definitive work on this bitter battle. Sears bases his account on diaries, dispatches, and letters to recreate a vivid drama.

Synopsis:

A definitive study of the climactic and pivotal battle of Antietam offers a vivid account of the two armies, the soldiers and officers, and the bitter, bloody campaign and analyzes the impact of Antietam on the Civil War as a whole.

Craig Ensz, March 28, 2010 (view all comments by Craig Ensz)
If you want to know why Antietam was the bloodiest battle of the Civil War, this the the resource you must have. Sears gives the reader both the strategic and well as the tactical issues undertaken by both armies. The cornfield, bloody lane, East and West fields are all covered in detail. A must for any civil war historian.
