Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding! This book is the best study of the battle of Gettysburg that I have come across. It uses a unique format that has one page of written narrative with some small map "clips" embedded in the page while the opposite page has a full (page-size) map of the entire area of battle. Using this same map on every other page one can see how the units maneuver and fight on an almost hourly basis and it shows all the units engaged down to brigade level. The maps are quite clear and this makes it very easy to follow the ebb and flow of this battle over the 3 days in which it was fought. This book can be read by itself or used as a reference when reading one of the other numerous narratives of this famous battle. This book has my highest recommendation and I hope the editors of Stackpole books continue their fine efforts.
