    One thought on “Fight Like the Devil: The First Day at Gettysburg, July 1, 1863 (Emerging Civil War Series)

    1. Steven Peterson on said:

      An odd little book. But also an attractive volume In a sense, it is like two books in one--a somewhat brief but still solid description and analysis of the first day at Gettysburg and a guide to the battlefield. An odd coupling, but--I think--it works.As a history, it tells the story well. Others provide more detail, but this does a good job. We read of the preliminaries to the battle, including Meade taking over the Army of the Potomac from Joseph Hooker, the movement of the Confederate Army on [...]

    2. Cheryl Powell on said:

      This is actually a guidebook to the first day's battlefield. My son and I try to visit the battlefield at least once a year. We are always looking for some obscure part of the battlefield that we haven't visited before. This book did offer a few possibilities to explore. Also, there were some interesting articles dealing with aspects of the first day included as appendices. Worth the time, even if you are very familiar with the battlefield.

    3. Vince on said:

      Designed as a battlefield tour guide, this book serves as a very good general introduction to the events of the first day. The scholarship is solid and up to date. The maps are good, but the many reproductions of drawings and photographs are mostly horrible greyed out blobs. If you are on the ground and using this book as a reference to the sites under discussion, then the clarity is of less importance. However, for the arm chair reader they are almost useless. There are a lot of reproductions a [...]

    4. Betsy on said:

      This book has some good pictures and instructions for visiting the First Day battlefield, however, I think some of the conclusions by the author about the fighting are somewhat questionable. Certainly it should be read, but read other books about July 1, 1863, too.

    5. Larry Woody on said:
