Never Call Retreat: Lee and Grant: The Final Victory (Gingrich and Forstchen's Civil War Trilogy) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The New York Times bestselling authors of Gettysburg continue their inventive series with this remarkable answer to the great "what-if" of the American Civil War: 

 

Could the South have won?

After his great victories at Gettysburg and Union Mills, General Robert E. Lee's attempt to bring the war to an end by attacking Washington, D.C., fails. However, in securing Washington, the remnants of the valiant Union Army of the Potomac are trapped and destroyed. For Lincoln, there is only one hope left, that General Ulysses S. Grant can save the Union cause. 

NEVER CALL RETREAT

 

It is August 22, 1863. Pursuing the Union troops up to the banks of the Susquehanna, Lee is caught off balance when news arrives that Grant, in command of over seventy thousand men, has crossed that same river. The two armies finally collide in Central Maryland and a bloody weeklong battle ensues along the banks of Monocacy Creek. This must be the "final" battle for both sides.

"With each book in their ongoing alternate history cycle, Gingrich and Forstchen have gone from strength to strength as storytellers."--William Trotter, The Charlotte Observer

 

"The authors' research is impeccable...the reader is left believing it could really have happened this way."--Booklist
