<b>An award-winning Civil War historian鈥檚 profile of the brilliant Union cavalry officer and the strategies he employed to prevent catastrophe at Gettysburg.</b><br /> 聽<br /> The Battle of Gettysburg turned the tide of the Civil War.

Wittenberg now focuses on the iconic commanding officer known to his troops as 鈥淗onest John鈥?and 鈥淥ld Steadfast.鈥?Wittenberg describes in fascinating detail the brilliant maneuvers Buford undertook to keep Gen. Robert E. Lee鈥檚 Confederate army at bay and later rescue what remained of the devastated First and Eleventh Corps.<i>鈥漈he Devil鈥檚 to Pay鈥?</i>celebrates the stunning military achievements of an unparalleled tactical genius at the onset of the Gettysburg Campaign and paints an unforgettable portrait of a quiet, unassuming cavalryman who recognized a possible disaster in the making and took bold action to avert it.<br /> 聽<br /> Based on a wealth of information from primary sources, <i>鈥淭he Devil鈥檚 to Pay鈥?</i>includes pages of illustrations, maps, and photographs, as well as a walking and driving tour of the battlefield sites where America鈥檚 history was made at a staggeringly high cost in blood.

Considered essential reading for generals, statesmen, and liberally educated citizens for more than 2,000 years, <i>The Peloponnesian War</i> is a mine of military, moral, political, and philosophical wisdom.<br /> <br />However, this classic book has long presented obstacles to the uninitiated reader. Robert Strassler's new edition removes these obstacles by providing a new coherence to the narrative overall, and by effectively reconstructing the lost cultural context that Thucydides shared with his original audience. Based on the venerable Richard Crawley translation, updated and revised for modern readers. <i>The Landmark Thucydides</i> includes a vast array of superbly designed and presented maps, brief informative appendices by outstanding classical scholars on subjects of special relevance to the text, explanatory marginal notes on each page, an index of unprecedented subtlety, and numerous other useful features.<br /> <br />In any list of the Great Books of Western Civilization, <i>The Peloponnesian War</i> stands near the top. This authoritative new edition will ensure that its greatness is appreciated by future generations.
