Grant Comes East is more a story of Robert E. Lee's attempt to win the war in the East before Grant could arrive and prepare his army for the ultimate invasion that would seal the doom for the South. Its vivid realism of war in the mid 1800's is sometimes difficult to read and gives one an appreciation of the men who fought in those times. The book also explores the reasons behind the failure in battle. Not every commander had his nation's well being uppermost on his mind. Some fought for political power, some for personal grandeur, and some fought because they loved it. Some like Lee and Grant fought to end the cancer as soon as possible.

This series (there are 3 books) tells of how history may of turned if Lee had acted on Longstreet's suggestions of going around the Union army during the Gettysburg campaign. This books starts with the actual history and then statrs the turn down the other possible track. If you are interested in a good story that could have shown a different road to the civil war then this is the series for you

I found this book to be boring in the extreme. The language was pompous and the idea ludicrous. I have never found alternative history novels to be of any interest at all. Mr. Gingrich has mistakenly believed himself to be a Michael or Jeff Shaara, and falls far short.

I read 'Gettysburg' by these 2 authors and thought it was terrible. Completely unbelievable in parts, and seemingly 'borrowing' a lot of stuff from 'Killer Angels.' This book was much better then the 1st. A more believable storyline (Though I wish Sykes would have been picked over Sickles). I look forward to the 3rd book

Again, Mr. Gingrich has fallen short, in my opinion, of producing a remotely believable alternative history. I could not get past the third chapter. I think he needs to try another venue for his writing.
