Never Call Retreat Summary

Never Call Retreat by Newt Gingrich

August 1863. 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 seventy thousand men, has crossed that same river. The two brilliant generals will now meet in a massive battle that will decide the outcome of the war. As with Gettysburg, "Never Call Retreat" will focus on an operational battle, a slugging match between two armies, this time with both armies led by brilliant commanders. In "Never Call Retreat" Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen bring all of their now critically acclaimed talents to bear in what is destined to be an immediate classic.
