Video Review: The Complete Gettysburg Guide for the iPad Kindle

by Scott Manning on July 16, 2011

The Complete Gettysburg Guide for the iPad Kindle is slick and well worth the $13.77 price tag. It is in full color and easily navigable like other books. In addition, you can zoom in on the maps.

To demonstrate some of the functionality, here is a video demonstration of the book.

I have used the hardcover edition for nearly two years now and it is my favorite guide. The Kindle edition just made it much easier to carry this thing around. If go to Gettysburg regularly, this book is invaluable. Even if you go once, this will serve as a great guide to help you find the areas of the field that are important to you.

If you do not have an iPad, the book is also available in hardcover.

Thank you so much for posting this – and yes, you pronounced by name perfectly :)
I appreciate your kind comments about the book and the new Kindle version – and I know Steve and our publisher Savas Beatie do as well. Have to admit that your compliments made me tear up a bit. We wanted folks to have a guide that opens up the world of Gettysburg to readers and visitors, and your comments about the book mean the world to me.
Best always,
