Gettysburg, fought over three days at the beginning of July 1863, is the subject of the third of Mark Adkin's magisterial 'Battle Companions' which have been universally acclaimed as definitive works, distinguished by their superb illustrations, completeness and attention to detail. The Gettysburg Companion is the complete guide to the greatest and most decisive battle of the American Civil War. Adkin's unique approach to the events of July 1-3, 1863 is what sets it apart from the plethora of rival accounts. The text does far more than simply describe the events of the battle, instead acting as a comprehensive guide to the armies, their weapons, equipment and tactics, the plans and problems of the rival commanders, - not only during the three-day battle but before and afterwards - as well as including a detailed study of the ground over which the battle was fought. Divided into twelve sections and illustrated throughout, this 500-page, large format book presents its impressive array of technical data, statistics and information on military procedure in a logical and visually accessible format -with over 70 maps, 140 diagrams and illustrations, 52 paintings of uniforms and a range of contemporary photographs. In each section Adkin includes discussion and commentary on a selection of controversies that continue to provoke fierce argument today - the author's relative impartiality from the history and legacy of the Civil War serving to bolster the credibility of this already authoritative text. The Gettysburg Companion is an absolute must-have for anyone hoping to further their understanding of this seminal moment in US military and political history.
