I have a big interest in Gettysburg and have been there at least once in 32 of the last 37 years. When this book was announced 2 years ago I immediately put it on my Amazon wish list. It has been a long wait but worth it. I was expecting an update of " Regimental Strengths At Gettysburg" by Busey and Martin. The book does give a complete Order Of Battle for Gettysburg with unit strengths and losses. It also does the same for all of the engagement of the campaign from the Battle of Brandy Station VA on June 9th 1863 through the engagement at Falling Waters MD on July 14. The book gives a brief description of each engagement with units engaged, their strengths and losses, if known. Most of the engagements have detailed maps with the main battle at Gettysburg having 17 maps - not counting the Cavalry vs Cavalry battles in the area. When casualties are mentioned in most sources, it is usually broken down as killed, wounded and missing, with missing being mostly prisoners, and wounded including men who would eventually die of wounds. This book sometimes goes into more detail giving killed, mortally wounded, wounded, wounded and captured, captured and missing although I am confused when a unit has captured AND missing in the same engagement. I have been to the Gettysburg area many times and know where most of the locations of the various engagements are but several of the place names are unknown to me. ( Where the heck is Seneca Mills MD ?) It is inconvenient to search maps elsewhere in an attempt to locate these places. The book needs one more map showing the places mentioned in the book. In spite of this, this is an excellent book and a must buy for anyone interested in the Gettysburg Campaign.

New and Noteworthy---The Gettysburg Campaign: Numbers, Losses, Strengths, Maps, Synopses In Color

The Gettysburg Campaign In Numbers and Losses; Synopses, Orders of Battle, Strengths, Casualties and Maps, June 9-July 14, 1863, J. David Petruzzi and Steven A. Stanley, Savas Beatie Publishing, 210 pp., 42 maps in color, 10 charts, $32.95.

Q: Of what does the Gettysburg Campaign consist?
A: 16 battles, 23 skirmishes, 3 fights 1 siege, and 1 raid

One of the more attractive, useful and informative reference books of the sesquicentennial is now available from Savas Beatie Publishing and authors David Petruzzi and Steve Stanley. The Gettysburg Campaign In Numbers and Losses; Synopses, Orders of Battle, Strengths, Casualties and Maps, June 9-July 14, 1863 presents over 40 color maps and synopses of 44 engagements occurring in June and July during The Pennsylvania Campaign.

With clear writing and interesting anecdotes, each engagement is described in a brief synopsis. Offered immediately after the synopsis is a listing of the units engaged, their commanders, the number of soldiers entering the engagement, and the number of killed, wounded in missing. The narrative style of the synopses is accessible and engaging. The bar graphs are clear and offer important visual comparisons of strengths and losses. The four Battle of Gettysburg bar graphs show July 1, July 2, July 3 and the total casualties; the colorful graphs are compelling. Those leading groups that discussing the campaign will find the ten bar graphs very useful.

Photographs of the major commanders in engagement offered within each synopsis; the majority are from the Library of Congress. Several are images from historical societies and the author' collections.

J. David Petruzzi and Steven Stanley have done it again! They have produced a work that uniquely stands out in the vast sea of Gettysburg material. J. David Petruzzi provides short, concise, and accurate descriptions of the all the battles and skirmishes of the Gettysburg Campaign. He covers aspects of the Gettysburg Campaign that are rarely covered in other books or are just simply glossed over. Each synopsis is followed by an order of battle, with the strengths and losses. Major battles include colorful graphs which visually show the strengths and losses.

With the description of each battle you get the wizardly maps of Steven Stanley. These maps give you amazing details of Corps, Brigades and Regiments. Its a who's who of each battle, showing visually how these armies moved against each other. These maps are meticulously detailed, yet they give you a sense of the ebb and flow of battle. I find the maps extremely helpful, colorful, and detailed.

This book is a nice companion to go along side their previous two works, The Complete Gettysburg Guide and The New Gettysburg Handbook. Each volume is filled with details, maps and trivia that you don't get in other resources. Each of these volumes are a must for novice and serious students of the Gettysburg Campaign.

I highly recommend the present volume to anyone's library.

Is it the excellent scholarship or the high quality of the finished product? As far as I'm concerned, it's both. As someone whose interest in Gettysburg began by studying the Order of Battle, I am of course attracted to all the work that's gone into this project to ensure that the details are as correct as humanly possible - but I am also blown away by the maps, the narrative and the overall design of this excellent book.

More About the Author

J. David Petruzzi is a long-time student of American history, specializing in the Civil War. He was recently named the Historical Advisor for the upcoming 12-part TV miniseries "To Appomattox" (scheduled to begin filming in May 2015).

He is the author of many articles in magazines such as America's Civil War, Civil War Times, Blue&Gray, and North and South. In 2006, his first book (with Eric Wittenberg) appeared, and is a best-selling narrative of Jeb Stuart's advance to Gettysburg titled "Plenty of Blame To Go Around." In 2008 his second book, "One Continuous Fight" (with Wittenberg and Michael Nugent), a narrative of the retreat from Gettysburg, is also a best-seller. In 2009, Petruzzi's third book, featuring maps and a complete design by acclaimed cartographer/graphic designer Steven Stanley, is titled "The Complete Gettysburg Guide." It opened to rave reviews, and won the US Army's Award for Excellence in the Reference category. As a followup, Petruzzi narrated an audio guide to the Gettysburg battlefield. Featuring packaging and maps designed by Stanley, it is one of the most popular audio guides to the field. "The New Gettysburg Campaign Handbook" by Petruzzi and Stanley was released in June 2011 and as a companion to their Gettysburg Guide, it is packed with a narrative, trivia and facts of entire campaign. Featuring a design and maps by Stanley, the book has likewise become a best-seller.

Appearing in May 2013 was Petruzzi and Stanley's newest book, "The Gettysburg Campaign in Numbers and Losses." Featuring over 60 new maps of the entire campaign by Stanley, the book contains Orders of Battle, Strengths, and detailed Losses for 48 engagements of the campaign from June 9 through July 14. Now readers will be able to see the exact losses each army suffered throughout the campaign at each engagement, as well as the total losses for the five-week period.

Petruzzi is currently working on several book projects, including a guide to the 1862 Maryland Campaign (will be released summer 2015), as well as several other Gettysburg-related projects. In 2009, following the release of the Gettysburg guide, he was a featured author on the Pennsylvania Cable Network's "PA Books" Show, which was viewed by several million subscribers across several states. He has also been a guest on PCN's Gettysburg 150th Anniversary coverage and several other PCN productions, many radio talk shows, as well as a historical advisor to documentary films and historical programs that have appeared on national television such as History, the Travel Channel, and PBS.

In addition to studying history and speaking to various historical groups and Civil War Rountables, as well as conducting battlefield tours, Petruzzi enjoys outdoor pursuits such as gardening, fishing, camping and traveling. He lives in northwest Pennsylvania.
