      I'm sure Stephen Recker and other Antietam guides are routinely asked that question. Indeed, during last weekend's visit to Antietam, many members of the Gettysburg CWRT asked for book suggestions.

      For a detailed explanation of the Maryland Campaign, South Mtn and Antietam, Sears' LANDSCAPE TURNED RED is a good choice.

      The best and most thought-provoking history of the Maryland Campaignn is Joe Harsh's TAKEN AT THE FLOOD, albeit from Lee's prespective.

      James Murfin's "Gleam of Bayonets" runs a decent second place to both above books.

      The forthcoming publication of Ezra Carman's battle history will provide a long-needed detailed tactical study of the battle itself.

      What is the "best book" on this battle?
