…Atlas of Mounted Operations from Brandy Station Through Falling Waters, June 9 July 14, 1863 (Savas Beatie Military Atlas Series)

"The Maps of Gettysburg, Gottfried's inaugural and groundbreaking atlas published in 2007, covered only a small portion of the cavalry's actions during the seminal campaign. This book addresses that topic in-depth in a way that no other study has ever achieved. Gottfried covers the opening battle of the campaign at Brandy Station in detail, followed by the actions at Aldie, Middleburg, and Upperville, where Jeb Stuart's cavalry successfully halted Alfred Pleasonton's probes toward the Blue Mountain passes in an effort to determine the location of Robert E. Lee's army. The movements toward Gettysburg are covered in a series of maps, including the actions at Westminister, Hanover, and Hunterstown. The five major actions on July 2-3 at Gettysburg take up a considerable portion of the book and include the fight at Brinkerhoff Ridge, and four more on July 3 (Stuart against David Gregg northeast of the town, Wesley Merritt's fight along Emmitsburg Road, Judson Kilpatrick's actions near the base of Big Round Top, and Grumble Jones's near-destruction of the 6th U.S. Cavalry near Fairfield)…"

Fantastic book. Long overdue from the publisher, but well worth the wait.

Info for countless wargame scenarios. Yuo could do entire battles, but with all the maps per battle, you can easily break them up into smaller games.

Also a great book to use when reading other books on these fights and to take with you to the battlefields.

The text is great as he puts in lots of participant quotes. There is a page of text with the corresponding map(s) on the facing page.
