Abstract:

"In the four most bloody and courageous days of U.S. history, two armies fought for two dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories ... promises ... love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war." ***A fictional account of four days in July, 1863 at the Battle of Gettysburg discussing tactics, plans, and preparations for battle from both the Northern and Southern points of view." *** "Robert E. Lee and James Longstreet tell the Southern view of the battle at Gettysburg, while Colonel Joshua Chamberlain and General John Buford present the Northern view." *** "Shaara's version of private reflections and conversations are based on his reading of documents and letters. Although some of his judgments are not necessarily substantianted by historians, he demonstrates a knowledge of both the battle and the area. The writing is vivid and fast moving." Libr J.
