Description

In the Battle of Gettysburg, the difference between victory and defeat was as narrow and sharp as a knife edge And in those three horrific days of sweltering heat and roaring cannon fire, the outcome was decided not only by acts of courage and strategic decisions but by the character of the players, complex relationships, and pure coincidence What if a few key factors had gone another way What if Robert E Lee s brilliant young cavalry commander Jeb Stewart had arrived earlier than the second day of battle What if Pickett s Charge had been swifter and stronger What if the Army of the Potomac was commanded by the daring Winfield Hancock instead of the cautious George Meade Gettysburg fuses a chaotic clash of arms with a keen vision of how wars are fought and won or lost Most of all, this is a monumental, blow by blow reimagining of one of history s most famous battles the men who shaped it, the events it triggered, and the way it might have been.

Gettysburg By Peter G. Tsouras

frustrating read the alternate history selling point is misleading because we think Mr tsouras actually cooked up a strategy in which in the Confederacy can win but it s merely the same battle with several tweaked events occurring.
