CHOICE Review

Pfantz is the author of a well-received book about the second day of fighting at Gettysburg and the retired chief historian of the national Park Service. He brings impressive credentials to this fully documented and highly illustrated study of the battles fought at Culp's Hill and Cemetery Hill on July 2 and 3, 1863. Pfantz wrote this work with two purposes in mind. As a historian, he sought a definitive examination of the engagements. He largely succeeded in this effort, through a clear exposition of the troops, strategies, and tactical deployments on both sides, plus a description of the historical controversies surrounding leading generals. However, readers might get lost unless they are familiar with the overall battle and where these engagements fit. As a preservationist, Pfantz hopes to stimulate interest in maintaining the sites, now in private hands and threatened by commercial development. Only time will show how well he succeeds in this goal. Recommended for libraries concentrating on Civil War studies. J. Mushkat; University of Akron
