Depicting the ebb and flow of troop movements on the battlefield is always a difficult task for an author. Words are helpful tools, and those scribed by capable historians frequently offer a fair representation of action. But in military history, it is the map that best unlocks the mysteries of the battlefield. John Imhof has provided Gettysburg affecinarios with a tremendous reference. Through the use of over 50 sequential maps, he has depicted the progression of the battle during the fateful afternoon and evening of July 2, 1863. Rather than presenting small maps of individual pieces of the battlefield, Imhof has focused on the battlefield as a whole, thereby providing the reader with a more complete vision of the interrelated events that occurred. John's research was based on participant accounts drawn from the Official Records, Bachelder Papers, the Southern Historical Society Papers, regimental histories, memoirs, the National Tribune, and much more. Maps, rather than chapters, form the divisions of each section of the book. Each map is followed by a heavily footnoted body of text that interprets them. The detailed commentary following each map is excellent. It is my opinion that there are few, if any, other battle histories that offer such a valuable and precise display of unfolding events.

Format: Hardcover
I had the pleasure of spending days with the author walking the Battlefield while he was putting together his notes back in 1994 and 1995.. Using every possible reference he could, especially any with maps John slowly worked toward what today is a excellent reference book. Now that there has been clearing done on much of the battlefield this book even makes more sense than it did to begin with.. The ebb and flow of the day's fighting when actually viewing the battlefield and refering to the book makes everything so much clearer.. As this the 150th anniversity of the battle is coming up I am once again reading other reference books about the second day and using John's book to enable me to better follow the writing of other authors.
