Narative History at its best,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gettysburg: The Last Invasion (Vintage Civil War Library) (Hardcover)
A Civil War history very much in the style of Shelby Foote which, for me, is the highest of praise. Guelzo delivers an evocative re-telling of the undoubted turning point of the Civil War in a manner that manages to be both languid in pace and even in coverage. While I don't believe there are any ground breaking ideas here and I may not completely agree with the assessment of all his subjects, (Longstreet in particular comes in for a rough time!) he clearly identifies the majority of his sources to support his conclusions.
In short I don't think any Civil War library is complete without it.
