Item description for Gettysburg (Landmark Books) by Mackinlay Kantor...

This book describes the bloodiest engagement of the Civil War: The Battle of Gettysburg, and its impact on the people in that part of Pennsylvania.

Publishers Description
When troops entered Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the South seemed to be winning the Civil War. But Gettysburg was a turning point. After three bloody days of fighting, the Union finally won the battle. Inspired by the valor of the many thousands of soldiers who died there, President Lincoln visited Gettysburg to give a brief but moving tribute. His Gettysburg Address is one of the most famous speeches in American history.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gettysburg (Landmark Books)?

This book was terrible!  Apr 25, 2003
This book was so bad I'm not going to give it any stars at all! I have never read a worse book in my life! It is about war and exitement but the author... took that all out of it!
The Greatest Book on Earth  Apr 26, 2002
This book is a great book! Nobody should pass this book up. None of it is boring! It has so much detail about the battle, battle prep, and cleanup. It is my favorite book. All the movements and everything were so vivid, that it is almost like you are there.
The Battle of Gettysburg tension, excitement... boring!!!  Sep 23, 1998
When I think of the Civil War I think of excitement and danger. I expect to read a good rich book about it. Yet this book squeezes all the fun out of thesubject War. Yes, war is nothing fun yet it may be exciting and detailed. This book totally lacks all this information. Yet it does tell of the blood thirsty belligerent Generals that are awaiting battle. I have a love of books, all throughout my life. I have read many too. I highly don't recommend this book for pleasure reading. Unless you want to get details for an essay, forget about it.
Where's Donald McKay's illustrations?  Jun 21, 1998
MacKinlay Kantor's "Gettysburg" has been the finest introduction to the battle of Gettysburg written for young people for almost 50 years. Unfortunaley, this paperback reprint only includes Kantor's prose. The outstanding pen and ink illustrations from the original Landmark edition by artist Donald McKay are not included. I give Kantor's writting 5 stars. But the current publisher's inability or unwillingness to secure the rights to McKay's illustrations earns a big fat 1 star.
