"Of all the days on all the fields where American soldiers have fought, the most terrible was September 17, 1862. The Civil War battle wa ged on that date at Antietam Creek, Maryland, took a human toll never exceeded on any day in our nation's history. The battle at Antietam was pivotal to the course of the war, yet the complete story of this climactic and bitter struggle has n e v e r b een told. In (this book, the author) draws on a wealth of newly discovered diaries, dispatches, and letters to recreate the vivid drama of Antietam - and drama it is, pitting high-stakes military gambler Robert E. Lee against George B. M cC le ll an , t he general with every soldierly quality but one, the will to fight. Sears's subject is not just generals and their tactics, however, it is also the emotions and experiences of the men in the ranks, and their stories emerge here wit h p owe rfu l a ut hen ticity." A few areas of light edge wrinkling, very light rubbing. Fine/Very Good+

ISBN 04953028 "The steam locomotive dominated land transport for over a century - and disappeared in a little over a decade .
