Review: The Generals Of Gettysburg: the Leaders Of America's Greatest Battle

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

This book was recommended to me by my father in law. It's basic premise being that most books on historic battles focus on strategy and ignore the human element of character. While I think it is an interesting premise, and I did learn a great deal, it was repetitive. Read full review
