Gettysburg, July 2: The Ebb and Flow of Battle reconstructs the 2nd Day's battle at Gettysburg and follows the troop movements of the two opposing armies as it has never before been attempted. The clock starts running at 12:01 a.m. and stops at midnight. In between those hours 164 full page maps and accompanying text (with an additional 9 detailed maps) present the reader with a chronological progression of the battle that, at times, slows the action down to minute-by-minute increments as the movements of each Union and Confederate regiment and battery is tracked. Thus the fight for the Peach Orchard, Wheatfield, Little Round Top, East Cemetery and Culp's Hill is depicted in such a way as to bring those actions into context with activity occurring on other parts of the field. Fully illustrated, the author has drawn from the Official Reports, regimental histories, diaries, and numerous other sources to enliven and support the narrative. "A must-have reference tool for anyone wishing to understand the second day at Gettysburg", "Invaluable" and a "Masterful book" according to The Civil War News book reviewer.

The negative small nits are : it's very heavy/large - hard to handle (but that goes with the territory of what he is trying to accomplish - as you had noted previously a soft-cover/ring-binder type of approach may have been better) and the maps don't always have enough detail (I just had Phil Laino's Atlas next to me and would refer to that on an as-needed basis).
