Publisher's Summary

Having pursued the remnants of the defeated Army of the Potomac up to the banks of the Susquehanna, General Robert E. Lee is caught off balance when news arrives that General Ulysses S. Grant, in command of over 70,000 men, has crossed that same river, a hundred miles to the northwest, and is advancing down the Cumberland Valley towards Virginia. The two brilliant generals will now meet in a massive battle that will decide the outcome of the war. In Never Call Retreat, Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen bring all of their critically-acclaimed talents to bear in what is destined to be a Civil War classic.


What the Critics Say

"A swiftly paced and authentically grounded novel....The authors' research is impeccable, and their presentation brings events down to a personal level, and, as in any good alternate vision of history, the reader is left believing it could really have happened this way." (Booklist)
