I alway give out three to four books to some of my
soldiers here in Maryland when they go off to the
advanced NCO course (part of their battlefield
studies). The first is the US Army War College Guide
to the Battle of Anteitam by Luvaas and Nelson, Second
is Landscape Turned Red by Stephen Sears, third the
Murfin book, Frassantito deals more with the
photograhic history of the site, A very good short
read is the Time Life book "Bloody April" part of the
Civil War Series. I have picked up several copies over
the years at used bookstores for a song, very cheap.
