    A solid Sears work

    This book is a great reference on the Battle of Antiteam. Mr. Sears provides insight on both the Federal and Confederate sides 'leadership, status of the armies' both prior to and after the battle, as well as practically blow-by-blow accounts of the battle. It can be a little overwhelming for readers who are just getting into the subject, but awesome nonetheless.

    Exceedingly well written novel about the battle of Antietam. Th

    Exceedingly well written novel about the battle of Antietam. The book starts by explaining the composition of both armies and the personalities of the important players on both sides. The events leading up to the meeting at Sharpsburg are clearly explained. The majority of the book is spent on the evolution of the battle itself, with interesting and evocative descriptions of the fighting, supplemented by detailed and accurate maps. The book ends with a discussion of the aftermath and significance of the battle. Overall, it is an excellent account of this single but important day of fighting. I visited the battlefield when I was about 2/3 of the way through the story and all of the writing accurately described the actual ground on which the fighting took place - this is an excellent and very readable primer if you're fortunate enough to have an opportunity to visit Antietam.

    Extremely Well written and researched. A must for a battle buff bookshelf.

    Sears scholarship is faultless. His writing style provides a superb narrative. BUT... while he conveys the complexity and confusion of the battlefield extremely well, it is difficult to get a clear understanding of the moves and counter moves without help of some visual aids. There are too few maps and the maps try to account for too long a time span in a single drawing. More maps covering perhaps troop movements hour by hour across the entire battlefield would have been a HUGE help.
