Riassunto: ?A fascinating ?what-if? journey . . . especially recommended reading for Civil War buffs [and] ?Alternative Universe? science fiction fans.?
?The Midwest Book Review
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 more 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.
