Gettysburg (Battles) (Battles That Changed the World) by Jr. Rice Earle
English | June 2002 | ISBN: 0791066843 | 112 pages | PDF | 5 MB
Marathon, Hastings, Midway – just a few of the major battles covered in this series, which introduces readers to the wartime engagements that changed the course of human history. Each book gives a historical account of a decisive battle – its participants, the political climate leading to the engagement, and the deciding factors that ultimately led to a victory or defeat. The furthest northern advance by the Confederates was met with their defeat by Union forces, a defeat that was a harbinger of the South's eventual surrender.
