I've read many histories of the Battle of Gettysburg and when I first saw The Last Invasion hitting bookstores, I said I've read enough and decided not I wasn't going to get the book but as I flipped through it in the bookstore, I realized that it did a really good job of reviewing the strategic elements of the battle, and the steps that led both armies involved to the fields of Gettysburg, with balancing the stories of soldiers on the field. Then, when I joined Audible, I decided to listen to the audio version of the book so I picked this book as my first choice as an Audible listener. I enjoyed the reading of the book and the Q&A session at the end with the author. Definitely an audio book I'll listen to again.
There are so many it's hard to pick one.
This is the first Robertson Dean audiobook I've listened to but he did an excellent job.
Many moments in this brutal battle were moving but Pickett's Charge would, I suppose, have to be the standout.
Snow & Steel matched my expectations for an account of the Battle of the Bulge, going into tremendous detail on the buildup to the battle, the battle itself, and the aftermath to the end of the war and beyond. Well worth a listen.
