Very good, tactical study of the oft ignored northern sector of the Gettysburg battle. Pfanz details Ewell's decision not to seize the heights of Cemetery and Culp's Hill on July 1, as well as providing an exhaustively detailed account of both the Confederate dusk assaults on July 2, and the fruitless hammering at Culp's Hill on July 3.Definitely a good book for Gettysburg specialists, recommended.
I can't WAIT to read his book on day 2!
In this third book of his trilogy on the Battle of Gettysburg, Pfanz focuses on a very little-recognized aspect of the engagement--the fight for Culp s Hill and Cemetery Hill on the northern part of the battlefield July 2-3. Thanks to Killer Angels and the movieGettysburg , Longstreet, Chamberlain, Pickett and others who participated in the fighting for the south and center part of the Union line are practically household names and rightly so. But hardly anyone recognizes the names of Oliver How [...]
This so-called "monograph" focuses on the battle within the greater battle of Gettysburg. In terms of research, data and facts, this book is very very good. My overall rating stems from what I viewed as I viewed as deficiencies in writing style and description, namely:-- it's dry; almost clinical (sterile?). There were some nice quotes and anecdotes but did not bring the battle "alive" as I've found with other history writers.-- the constant references to this regiment's right and left spun the [...]
Excellent book by Harry Pfanz that pieces together the fight on Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill. Because there were many varied actions on the three days of the Battle, Culp's Hill doesn't fit neatly into the scheme of things, and has somehow been minimalized in the scope of the battle vs. fights like Pettigrew/Pickett's charge and the struggle for Little Round Top. But this book puts it in very clear perspective. Recommend for all CW students and lovers of the Battle of Gettysburg.
Excellent history of the bloody 3rd day ofBattle before Pickett's charge. On Culp's Hill the 1st Maryland Infantry USA battled the 1st Maryland CSA, with ferocity. The Union regiment prevailed and drove off the Confederate Infantry. Pfanz's book and the two other books about the battle are a must have for anyone into the Battle of Gettysburg.
Absolutely awesome study on the Union right and Confederate left.
A little hard to read at times but a good book on a little know part of the battle. My great grandfather was there and that is why I read this book. Sometimes it was hard to follow what was happening but then battle was a hard fought battle that no one seemed to have a clear view of.
more of the same details, stories
This was a good account of the 2nd and 3rd days of the battle at Gettysburg. I did learn more about the lesser known battles of Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill. This book was a bit dry for my taste.
Any Civil War buff must have all four of his books. If you read all four books you could stop reading about the battle.All four books are outstanding!
