The Gettysburg operations remain one of the most complex and difficult to understand. Bradley Gottfried's The Maps of Gettysburg: An Atlas of the Gettysburg Campaign, June 3-July 13, 1863 offers a thorough and unique approach to the study of this multifaceted campaign. Robert E. Lee launched his second invasion of the north on the heels of Chancellorsville, his greatest battlefield victory of the war. Many believe that what was at stake ultimately determined the outcome of the Civil War. The extensive campaign that followed stretched from 3 June until 13 July 1863, and included the clearing of the Shenandoah Valley, Jeb Stuart's controversial cavalry raid and a series of wide-ranging cavalry battles. Unlike any other book on the subject, The Maps of Gettysburg plows new ground by breaking down the entire operation into thirty maps sets or`action-sections' enriched with 144 detailed full-page maps comprising the entire campaign. Keyed to each piece of cartography is a full facing page of detailed text describing the units, personalities, movements and combat (including quotes from eyewitnesses) depicted on the accompanying map, all of which makes the Gettysburg story come alive. Serious students of the battle will appreciate the extensive and authoritative endnotes and complete order of battle. They will also want to bring the book along on their trips to the battlefield. Perfect for the easy chair or for stomping the hallowed ground of Gettysburg, The Maps of Gettysburg is a seminal work that belongs on the bookshelf of every serious and casual student of the battle. Bradley M. Gottfried has worked in higher education for more than three decades as a faculty member and administrator. He is currently President of the College of Southern Maryland. An avid Civil War historian, Dr. Gottfried is the author of five books, including Kearny's Own: The History of the First New Jersey Brigade (2005) and Brigades of Gettysburg: The Union and Confederate Brigades at the Battle of Gettysburg (2002).
