Once again we are in the summer of 1863 and two armies meet at a crossroads in Pennsylvania at a place neither wanted to be. As the three day battle unfolds we follow the fates of two regiments both numbered 26th from North Carolina and Wisconsin. Both will be used up by the third day. The usual big characters are there fighting the enemy and quarreling with each other. Meade gets a fairer treatment than in Killer Angels. Peters acknowledges the place Shaara's work holds but reminds us that the battle is large enough to provide many novelists material for their work. This reviewer a former redleg, was happy to see General Henry Hunt and his artillery men get their due.

Ralph Peters AKA Owen Parry. Be sure to look up his other work under his pen name Owen Parry. All od his Civil War books are incredible

One of the greatest war novels I have ever read. Any fan of The Killer Angels will love this.
