One of the few books on the Battle of Antietam that provides the depth and detail I like about a key battle of the Civil War.
It was a great read! I rarely read a book twice but I did on this book.
This was Sears' first Civil War book, from back in the early 1980s, but he's already got his in-depth style largely set. As usual for Sears, the book covers not only the battle but the lead up to and aftermath of the battle. Very enjoyable read.

Sears is a bit notorious for his disdain of George McClellan, although fairly well justified I think. This book is now almost 40 years old, but is probably still the best single-volume work on the campaign.
