Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Osprey's study of the Battle of Gettysburg (1863), one of the decisive battles of the American Civil War (1861-1865). The Confederate invasion of the Northern states was General Lee's last great gamble. By taking the war to the Union he hoped to force Lincoln into peace negotiations, or win support from the European powers who were watching events closely from across the Atlantic. Equally, Meade's Army of the Potomac needed to regain it's fighting credibility after the setbacks of Fredericksburg and saw this as an opportunity to redeem its honour. The clash of 150,000 soldiers from both sides would ultimately decide the fate of a nation.

Synopsis:

The defining point of the Civil War and perhaps the history of the nation, Gettysburg was Robert E. Lee's momentous gamble: to take the war to the North. For three days, his Army of Northern Virginia pitched a furious battle against George Meade's Army of the Potomac in an epic struggle that turned the farmland of southern Pennsylvania red and would ultimately decide the fate of the nation.

Synopsis:

This edition has detailed information on the battle and maps pinpointing key moments in this campaign. The Gettysburg campaign was General Lee's last great gamble. By taking the war to the North he hoped to force Lincoln into peace or win support from European powers watching events closely.
