The Battle of Gettysburg remains one of the most controversial military actions in America's history, and one of the most studied. Professor Coddington's is an analysis not only of the battle proper, but of the actions of both Union and Confederate armies for the six months prior to the battle and the factors affecting General Meade's decision not to pursue the retreating Confederate forces. This book contends that Gettysburg was a crucial Union victory, primarily because of the effective leadership of Union forces-not, as has often been said, only because the North was the beneficiary of Lee's mistakes. Scrupulously documented and rich in fascinating detail. Stands as one of the landmark works in the history of the Civil War.CONDITION: Books are in LIKE NEW condition for their age with only a couple of faint, negligible rubs to the gilt page ends, barely worth noting, and a couple of imperfections to the spine of volume 1 (SEE PICS FOR FURTHER DETAILS).
