Lee had a heretofore undiscovered strategy at Gettysburg that, if successful, could have crushed the Union forces and changed the outcome of the war.Hide synopsis
This book is a must read for any Civil War Buff. It clearly outlines the confusing effects of the primative communications existing in 1863. Had Lee a clearer real time understanding of what was unfolding on the third day of the battle outcomes might have been very different. You get much closer to the pivital players at Gettysburg including the critical role of George A. Custer who is given many accolades for his July 3rd successes against J.E.B. Stewart. You take away an understanding on just how close Gettysburg could have ended with a victory for the south. An enjoyable, enlightening read.
