Michael,

Have been told to avoid this book by many who consider themselves afficionados of the Battle of Gettysburg.  But I'm stubborn, and did pick up a copy of it so I can make my own judgment on the contents that he included in the book.  It's my way of trying to be fair to the author, and believe me when I say, if I like it, I will speak on it, and if I don't like it, I will say why as well. 

Main problem I have, especially with the big time publishers, is that they will print anything on the Battle of Gettysburg, and most of the times do so not for the merit of the work, but the cash that comes in when folks buy the books.

Hope all is well.

Regards from the Garden State,

Steve Basic
