Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Bruce Catton and Gettysburg: The Final Fury:

“Military history . . . at its best.”
Chicago Tribune
 
“Nothing in our time makes the Civil War as alive as the writings of Bruce Catton.”
The Baltimore Sun
 
“No one around can write of the ‘terrible beauty of an army’ the way Bruce Catton can.”
The Washington Post Book World
 
“A rare combination of talent as a writer and historian.”
The Kansas City Star

“No one ever wrote American history with more easy grace, beauty and emotional power, or greater understanding of its meaning, than Bruce Catton. There is a near-magic power of imagination in Catton’s work that seemed to project him physically into the battlefields, along the dusty roads and to the campfires of another age.”
—Oliver Jensen, former editor of American Heritage

“[Catton combines] a scholar’s appreciation of the Grand Design with a newsman’s keenness for meaningful vignette. . . . Catton created an ‘enlisted man’s-eye view’ of the war that treated humanely the errors on both sides.”
Newsweek

“All [of Catton’s Civil War books] are remarkably good books, distinguised by a vivid, fast-moving style.”
The New York Times Book Review

“One of the most skillful old pros that the craft [of historical narrative] has ever known.”
Saturday Review of Books

    Don't buy

    Very disappointing. With this being the 150th anniversary of the battle, the publishing date leads you to believe that this is a new book when it is in fact a reprint from 1974.
