    This book is generally regarded as a classic on the subject of this battle and all the issues around it It is written very much in the narrative style of Anthony Beaver and although uite a dense read the pages just float by Get it in hardback if you can as the type may be a bit larger and readable

    Stephen Sears is in my opinion a master of bringing complex characters and events to life He turns the likes of Stonewall Jackson Robert E Lee and George McClellan into real people and helps to understand what it must have been like for the private soldier to endure the absolute horror of the Civil War

    All battles are chaotic I suppose but Antietam seems to have been chaotic than most In his very readable book Stephen Sears succeeds in untangling the events of the day and what went before and sets them out in depth and with with great clarityHe also brilliantly brings to life the participants in the struggle giving a voice to the ordinary soldier as well as the senior officers The reader is left in no doubt what an horriffic experience it was to be caught up in this very bloody battle and is left in awe of the courage shown on both sides The best book I have read on Antietam by a very long way
