From the Publisher"There is nothing in a title which promises to be more deadening than the word logistics. And if that is the conclusion you draw about Retreat from Gettysburg, you could not have made a more egregious mistake. . . . Not only does Brown give a bravura survey of the internal mechanisms of the Confederate forces in the Gettysburg campaign, he also provides a moving entrance into the mind of [a] defeated army, trying to hold itself together, and find some way to escape and fight another day."
-Allen C. Guelzo, The Barnes & Noble Review
"Captures the reader from beginning to end. . . . Should be in the library of every serious student and scholar of Civil War history."
— Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography
"An immensely important read for anyone with a serious interest in the war."
— The NYMAS Review
"Using an impressive array of untapped source material, Kent Brown has written the first detailed narrative on the Confederate retreat from Gettysburg. This phase of the campaign has often been misunderstood and Brown brings understanding to how and why the Army of Northern Virginia escaped across the Potomac without another full-scale battle against the Army of the Potomac. (D. Scott Hartwig, Gettysburg, Pennsylvania)"
