Publisher's Summary

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 enjoyable narrative history of a Civil War that might have been.

Biased and amateur

I expected more from this book given the authors reputation. I received this book for free in exchange for a voluntary review. I found it biased. Not enough credit given to the South and dismissive of the disparity in the command abilities of the union and confederate generals and their staffs.
