    Some consider Lee's first invasion of the north to be the true turning point of the war. Combined with victories at Perryville and Corinth, the Union's Pyrrhic victory at Antietam ended the South's best chance to gain European recognition and offered Lincoln just enough cover to issue the emancipation proclamation. That said, Perryville and Antietam were frustrating battles where the Union had a chance for a major victory but failed to grasp it.

Savas' Maps series does a wonderful job and illustrating the campaign and the battle in a step by step format. This makes it easier to follow the action. This might be the single best series of books on the Civil War that have ever been composed.

    Brad never disappoints. His maps are always spot on and a great reference on the field.

    A reference book that everyone needs to own if you have any interred in this historic battle The bloodiest day in American History with over 23,000 casualties in one day. The Battlefield itself is one of the best preserved National Parks in the US and having this book on hand as you walk the Battlefield in quite valuable to say the least.

    Gets five stars because there's really nothing else like it. There are some errors, some glaring, but one can easily look past those. Overall it's a great volume. I read this (all of it) in conjunction with Richard Slotkin's The Long Road to Antietam and was greatly rewarded in that effort. I am a very visual person and most descriptions of battles without maps, or with poor maps, often leave me scratching my head. While I can't say I'm now an expert on this campaign, I do have a much clearer un Gets five stars because there's really nothing else like it.

I am a very visual person and most descriptions of battles without maps, or with poor maps, often leave me scratching my head. While I can't say I'm now an expert on this campaign, I do have a much clearer understanding of the fighting at Sharpsburg, as well as the South Mountain clashes. I've had Gottfried's Gettysburg volume longer than this one and look forward to delving into that while I read Guelzo's Gettysburg: The Last Campaign.

    I bought this book while visiting the Antietam battlefield this autumn. I've read a couple books about the battle, but none have been able to convey the flow of the fight more clearly than this book. Every flip of the page shows a map of the battle at one particular place and time, with an accompanying page of text to describe the events. I finally understand how the battle of Antietam developed, how it ebbed and flowed over the course of the day, and how it ended. This book is simply excellent.
