About this Product

Antietam was one of the critical battles of the American Civil War. The fortunes of the South were riding high after the resounding victory at Second Manassas. While Bragg and Kirby Smith invaded Kentucky, Lee's invasion of Maryland was intended to maintain the Southern offensive momentum and to win the recognition of the European powers. But his bold plan was compromised and at the Antietam River the Army of Northern Virginia was fighting for its very life. This title examines the build-up to Hooker's attack, and details the famous clashes at Bloody Lane and Burnside Bridge.

Biographical Note

Norman S. Stevens is a long-time student of the American Civil War. He is currently a Major and Assistant Professor of history at the Virginia Military Institute, and his expert knowledge and passion for the subject are clearly demonstrated in this, his first title for Osprey.
