Could the South have won the Civil War? This question has been asked and answered affirmatively dozens of times. But how likely was it, in reality?
Now Andrew J. Heller (Gray Tide in the East) explores this fascinating subject using the tool of counterfactual analysis, instead of uninformed opinion, to look for an answer in Decision at Antietam.
As always, Heller rests his arguments on solid research of the historical records and the works of reputable historians, both scholarly and popular, to which he adds his own imaginative, yet authentic, eyewitness accounts.
A seamless blend of fiction and fact, Decision at Antietam is a convincing and very readable narrative history of a Civil War that might have been.
