Praise for "Gettysburg "Well-executed alternative history. The authors show thorough knowledge of the people, weapons, tactics, and ambience of the Civil War. A veritable feast. The novel has a narrative drive and vigor that make the climactic battle scene a real masterpiece of its kind." - "Publishers Weekly "Gingrich and Forstchen write with authority and with sensitivity." - "St. Louis Post-Dispatch "["Gettysburg] is believable and beautifully written...every bit as good as Michael Sharra's "The Killer Angels. Not only do Gingrich and Forstchen bring the characters to life, and often horrible death, but they do so with memorable observations on the ways of war and vivid, technically accurate descriptions of frightful Civil War combat." - "The Courier Journal (Kentucky) "An eye-opener...filled with gore, smoke, heat of battle, and a surprise ending. The writing is vivid and clear. A ripping good read." - "Washington Times "Two respected historians, one horrific battle---and the challenging question of 'what if?' Sure to become a Civil War classic to be read and remembered." - W. E. B. Griffin, author of "Final Justice "Gettysburg is a creative, clever, and fascinating 'what if' novel that promises to excite and entertain America's legions of Civil War buffs." - James Carville "As historical fiction this stands beside "The Killer Angels. As an alternative history of Gettysburg, it stands alone. The mastery of operational history enables the authors to expand the story's scope. The larger-scale, more fluid battle of Gettysburg described is internally consistent, a logical consequence of the novel's challenging major premise. The narrativeis so clear that the action can be followed without maps. And the characters are sometimes heartbreakingly true to their historical originals." - Dennis Showalter, former president of the Society of Military Historians Quantity Available: 1.
