Summary
An "analysis of one of the most iconic and defining events in American history ... With the luxury of hindsight, historians have long denounced the folly of Lee's attack, but this work [posits] the tactical brilliance of a master plan that went awry. Special emphasis is placed on the common soldiers on both sides, especially the non-Virginia attackers outside of Pickett's Virginia Division"--Amazon.com
