The thread title says this is a review - where is it?Saw this on the internet yesterday, I was wondering if anyone here has read it and what are you opinions?
Judging from the reviews online, it seems like a handy reference book.
Thank you for your help. I’ll have to get those too. I purchased The Brigades of Gettysburg, it is awesome book to have for reference.I have three books by Bradley Gottfried: The Brigades of Gettysburg, The Artillery of Gettysburg and The Maps of Gettysburg. By profession, he is an academic. Although his Ph.D. is in Zoology, his research into history is thorough, and so far as I can tell, as reliable as any. By way of example of his carefulness, the monument on the battlefield for the 1st US, Batteries E&G (Randol's Battery) shows it was armed with four 12 pounders. Gottfried correctly states that, like all horse artillery by that time, they were armed with four ordinance rifles, which were lighter and better suited for cavalry duty.
I like all three of the books noted above and use them often as a reference.
