display_description An incisive look at the turning point of the Civil War, when the great armies of the North and South came to Gettysburg in July 1863—from Pulitzer Prize winner Bruce Catton, one of the great historians of the Civil War.

Engaging and authoritative, Catton analyzes the course of events at Gettysburg, clarifying its causes and bringing to life the most famous battle ever fought on American soil. Paying full heed to the human tragedies that occurred, Gettysburg: The Final Fury gives an hour-by-hour account of the three-day battle, from the skirmish that began the engagement, to Pickett's ill-fated charge. Catton provides context for the fateful decisions made by each army's commanders, and examines the battle's military and political consequences, placing it within the larger narrative of the Civil War and American history. Described by The Chicago Tribune as "military history...at its best," Gettysburg, The Final Fury is a classic.

Features 41 illustrations and 5 maps.
