Book Description: Charles Scibner's Sons, New York, New York, 1968.This book is the gold standard for the history of the battle at Gettysburg. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Gettysburg Campaign: A Study in Command. The Battle of Gettysburg is surely one of the best described military actions in history. The controversies over strategy and the ascribing of praise and blame when the battle itself was hardly over, and they have continued until today. Accounts of the battle are legion, and although differences in interpetation are often striking, it seems unlikely that there is much new infromation yet to be uncovered. To Professor E. B. Coddington's great credit is the surprising achievement of having found important new manuscript sources bearing on the Gettysburg Campaign, and his book will stand as the definitve account of the battle.

One of the major points of this book is taht in terms of men and material going into that battloe, the sides were evenly matched.In other words, the North did not prevail because of overwhelming strength alone.
