    Although Showdown at Antietam can be used as a battlefield guide. Its details of the battle and the various units is best read cover to cover before visiting the battlefield and then used again to follow the location by location tour integrated into the book.

    Having read it shortly before the recent anniversary, we were then able to follow the battle without either standing around reading or skipping though pages to save time during our time spent at the site. Perfect for the detail oriented Civil War buff or the casual tourist trying to quickly understand the significance of America’s bloodiest day.

    More dead than the Revolutionary, 1812, Indian and Spanish American Wars combined. Four times the deaths at Omaha and Utah beaches on D-Day. A sacred site worth visiting and with this book in hand.

    I ordered this book for my Kindle last night just before bed and planned to leaf through it for a few minutes… but instead, I found the book so fascinating and well written that I ended up reading it under the covers (to not wake Husband) until late into the night. Mr. Kunkel’s dry wit, cool and well-researched battle commentary and interesting, easy-to-understand maps put this guide up there on the shelf next to the most respected historian’s books about the Civil War.

    I also couldn’t take my eyes off his ‘Then and Now’ photos. I highly recommend it for arm-chair travelers, and plan to actually follow his thoughtfully laid out route to tour this battlefield this summer.

    Buy this book, you’ll be transported to another time. Can’t wait to get the one on Gettysburgh now.
