Stephen W. Sears, a protégé of Bruce Catton at American Heritage magazine, penned Landscape Turned Red as his first venture into full-length Civil War history.
This fantastic battle study was a great success for Sears. His subsequent studies of the Peninsula campaign, Chancellorsville, and Gettysburg add to his fine reputation.
Of all the days on all the fields where American soldiers have fought, the most terrible was September 17, 1862. The Civil War battle waged on that date at Antietam Creek, Maryland, took a human toll rarely equaled on any day in our nation’s history.
Dustjacket has minor tear at headband; light chipping of extremities; else very good.
