Stephen Sears, Landscape Turned Red, is the classic and enduring account of the political and military maneuvers surrounding General Robert E. Lee’s Maryland Campaign of 1862, and the battle at Antietam Creek.

Of all the days on all the fields where American soldiers have fought, the most terrible was September 17, 1862.

This fantastic Antietam battle study was one of Stephen Sears’ first efforts of this type. His compelling narrative describes the hell of battle, while also engaging the reader in the earth-shaking political stakes of this one-day of combat. His subsequent studies of the Peninsula campaign, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg (2003) add to his fine reputation.

After almost thirty-five years, Landscape Turned Red remains our first recommendation for a one-volume study of the Battle of Antietam.

Sears, Stephen W. LANDSCAPE TURNED RED: THE BATTLE OF ANTIETAM. New Haven: 1983. 1st edition, 431p., illus., maps. Very good condition in dust jacket.
