Analysis of the Battle of Gettysburg is a crowded field, but Guelzo's easy writing style and depth of detail have created a standout. The weaving together of politics and personalities with all of the pathos and action of the battle itself results in a text that a broad range of listeners will find riveting. The very density of the detail in this sweeping story requires a helpful guide, and Robertson Dean's steady voice and unflagging pace fill this role admirably. Dean keeps his delivery clear and unadorned, letting the material deliver its own considerable drama and emotion. Listeners need not be experts on Civil War battles to find this an accessible and satisfying look at an iconic event in American history.
