    Concise, bare-bones summary of the Battle of Gettysburg. We're presented with a brief overview for the three-day engagement along with the major players involved.

    An enormous amount of organization, thought, and expense is involved in waging war. In 1861, after rebellious forces fired on and eventually captured the Union fort situated in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, the United States officially entered a state of war. The war was declared but the battle lines and combatants were yet undecided. Neither the United States nor, the newly formed Confederate States of America had a standing army capable of waging war. A call for volunteers was issued and An enormous amount of organization, thought, and expense is involved in waging war. In 1861, after rebellious forces fired on and eventually captured the Union fort situated in Charleston Harbor, South Carolina, the United States officially entered a state of war. The war was declared but the battle lines and combatants were yet undecided. Neither the United States nor, the newly formed Confederate States of America had a standing army capable of waging war. A call for volunteers was issued and massively responded to on both sides. These raw recruits hardly constituted armies. Massive amounts of money, organization, and training were required before these men could effectively take the field of battle, Many of the officers, on both sides, had limited field experience during the war with Mexico but this wasn’t enough to make them battle ready. It also must be noted and remembered that many of the best officers on both sides were products of the United States Military College at West Point and once had an intimate knowledge (often even friendship) with their counterparts and often knew how they would react under different circumstances. Books concerning the Civil War are generally written by and in the viewpoint of the Northern forces. Battles, such as Bull Run, Antietam, and Stone River were known to the Confederates as Manassas, Sharpsburg, and Murfreesboro. With the recent turmoil over monuments to this war and the generals and men that fought and died in it, it must never be forgotten that troops on both sides of the battle line were Americans. Regardless of their beliefs and motivations, the fought and died, making the United States (good or bad) what it is today. This book was short but concise. It gives the reader the bare bones of this three-day battle that changed the course of the war. I think many readers will enjoy reading it.

    A simpler way to describe it for those not as into history I started reading this in the hopes that I would better understand the Civil War. I realized I truly didn't know much about it beyond the address. It was overall a good book and relatively easy read with the length, but hard to follow with all the Generals mentioned. Some sort of diagram or illustrations of northern vs. southern generals would've been helpful. I found myself re-reading whole pages to try to understand whose side I was rea A simpler way to describe it for those not as into history I started reading this in the hopes that I would better understand the Civil War.

A book that should've taken me an hour to read took me over 2 hours, spread over 2 months out of frustration that I still wasn't understanding the war. Perhaps I needed to read something of how the Civil War started in the 1st place before this.

    Gettysburg Overview The book is a typical Hourly History book - a brief overview of a historical event or person. This one covers the battle at a very high level, and spends more time than I’d like on prelude and postlude, with less discussion of the actual battle than I’d like to see. Having said that, it’s a good easy read and will give a solid and basic understanding of the Battle of Gettysburg with the added bonus of a complete Gettysburg Address in the postlude.

    It lives up to the concept of an HOURLY READ, in that it is superficial and short. At some places the timeline is confusing. 3/5 at best maybe even a 2. Don't bother with this text if you know ANYTHING about Gettysburg. It won't add to your understanding.

    Good as a short individual summary of the battle for those starting an interest in the war. I liked it as the individual summary of my title above. Someone wishing a more in depth analysis must look elsewhere

    Good short history...lacked detail and drama Good synopsis but too short and lacked details. Failed to look at cause/effect and did not examine faults and leaders well.

    Some military leaders are gifted and some are not; and heaven be with those who serve under the lesser leaders.

    Battle of Gettysburg: A Turning Point in the War Once again, we have a brief, but comprehensive picture of one of the most important battles of the Civil War. Not only do we read a full account of the battle itself, in this brief history, but we also get a concise and accurate picture of what happened in the days and even months before the battle. this is important because it explains why the battle happened as it did, and perhaps why it was so devastating.

This is another well-written part of the Hourly History series and I hope it will lead many readers to do further study of this subject. I would point out, however, so that maybe some editing can be done, that there are several typographical errors in this book. While they are small, they do sometimes detract from the excellent writing and research that went into this small book. Thank you for another informative read!
