With these words Major-General Henry Heth set in train the course of events culminating in the titanic clash around the small Pennsylvania town of Gettysburg. On 1 July two Confederate Corps swept towards this strategic crossroads as Federal troops fought a desperate delaying action. The men of the Army of Northern Virginia were the best in the Confederacy. Under Robert E. Lee they had whipped every Federal force sent against them, and they were confident this time would be no exception. As the first attacks swept forward full of confidence they were met by a storm of fire. Judging from the determination of their bluecoated adversaries this was going to be no ordinary fight." "(This series) presents the military enthusiast with a new angle on the major battlefields of history. Supported by comprehensive organisation diagrams the forces involved are examined unit-by-unit, including the 'tooth' combat elements and the vital 'tail' support troops. The objectives of the operation are analysed and this 'theory' contrasted with the realities of the battle itself." Interior - two 1 1/2" pencil marks on page 11 partially erased with some light color loss on the page, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exterior - very light rubbing, large corner crease on rear cover.
