I have read Sears' Gettysburg book and wanted to try another - and was not disappointed. I have read various books as to the battle of Antietam but this is the most comprehensive. Sears has a nice way of providing some background information and detailing events leading up to the battle. Then the details of the ultimate battle make it seem as if you were in the middle of it.
I recommend this for a wide varitey of audiences.

Great book! Sears is knowledgable and fair, but it is really his ability to create an interesting narritive of an event most readers are already largely familiar with that makes "Landscape Turned Red" work so well. In large measure Sears succeeds, because he weaves in interesting quotations from such a wide variety of sources without distracting the story. He quotes Lee and McClellan, but also from unknown officers and men on both sides. Great work!
