Grant Comes East reflects his skill and his knowledge of black soldiers. My only quibble is the addition of Maryland to the Confederacy by force rather than referendum. I would have preferred the authors making an analogy to West Virginia.

Author Grant Comes East: A Novel of the Civil War is a New York Times bestseller .

Newt Gingrich William R. Forstchen Albert S. Hanser. Grant Comes East: A Novel of the Civil War is a New York Times bestseller written by former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives Newt Gingrich, William R. Forstchen, and Albert S. It was published in 2004 and is the sequel to Gettysburg: A Novel of the Civil War. The third book of the trilogy is called Never Call Retreat: Lee and Grant: The Final Victory and was released in 2005.

Grant Comes East" by Newt Gingrich, William R. A series of books that focus on a victorious CSA that has won the Civil War after the Battle of Gettysburg as well as its subsequent conflict with the USA under William Tecumseh Sherman in the Second American Civil War with aid from the French Empire, war with Spain over the territory of Cuba in 1895 called the Spanish–Confederate War, and an. alternate World War I between the "Continental Entente" (consisting of the Confederate States and the French Empire) up against the "Grand Alliance" (consisting of the United States and the British Empire).

Wonderful story! Puts you right there in our history. After reading many books on our nation's early founding and wars I found its enjoyable as well as emotional to read a book taking the perspective of a story. The history and biographical data was well adhered to concerning the main events and players, so it simply brought it all to life. Speaker Gingrich is a terrific writer; I have enjoyed his books and recommend this one.
What if Lee's 1863 invasion of the north had succeeded in destroying the Army of the Potomac? This novel attempts to answer this question and does a fine job of it. As the title implies, General Grant is called east after the fall of Vicksburg to confront Robert E. Lee a little earlier than in actual fact. Anyone interested in the Civil War should enjoy this novel. As with the first, its portrayal of the time is compelling, and it is an easy read.
I have enjoyed Newt's books on the American Revolution and WWII (Pearl Harbor). This Civil War series covers the Battle of Gettysburg thru Lee and then the CSA's surrender. The premise is actually fictional. Longstreet talks Lee into flanking the Army of the Potomac on day 2 of Gettysburg, instead of charging forward with a heavy loss of lives. The story moves from there through the 3 books in the series. In Book 2 of the series, US Grant is moved East from Vicksburg to save Washington DC and the Union from the advances of the Confederates under Robert E Lee, Excellent reading as it provides a realistic perspective into the Civil War, including the tragic loss of life.
Does anyone know how much of the work here Newt Gingrich did? Did William Fortschein (or however it's spelled) do all the writing after talking things over with Gingrich. I am NOT a Newt Gingrich fan, but I LOVE this series. I'm glad I only have to wait a month to receive the next volume. Other people have written about the story. I want to mention the plotting. This is NOT simply a book where Lee gets the breaks and the South wins the war. Reading this book (actually, I heard the unabridged tapes) is sort of like the pleasure very good chess players get from watching a world championship chess match. As I listened to this book, I felt that the authors were having the South make its best move, then the North made its best move. Back and forth. It was very exciting. If it were just Lee and Grant pulling the strings, that would be great, but there are also lots of wild cards (to mix the metaphor). Lee has a wonderful battle plan, but will Pickett follow the plan in the heat of battle? Grant has a wonderful plan, but will Sickles' ambition ruin it? I kept gasping with surprise and awe at the plot twists, yet they were always well motivated, given what we know of these people. Even the weather, the time of year, the supplies, the cooperation of civilians have their effects on "the best laid plans." While this is the center novel of a trilogy, I liked it even better than "Gettysburg." "Gettysburg" was also excellent, but it made me uncomfortable to have an actual battle changed (yes, I know that's my problem, not the books). Here, the battles are all made up, so that wasn't a problem. Read this, but do read the first volume first. By the way, the tapes are also excellent--very well read. However, two tapes had the sides reversed (side 13 was actually side 14, and vice versa). I appreciate it when someone tells me "Grant Moves East, tape 8, side B." If that had happened on this tape, then I wouldn't have listened to all of side 13, then come to side 14 only to find that it is in fact BEFORE side 13, so-called.
"Grant Comes East" is the riveting second volume in Newt Gingrich and William Forstchen's historical trilogy that addresses the question, "What if the South had won at Gettysburg?" As a lover of Civil War history and of the Gettysburg campaign in particular, I have to admit that I was skeptical when I read Volume I. However, I was quickly won over by the historical accuracy/plausibility and by the page-turning writing.

Volume II does not disappoint. It is equally as page-turning with wonderful character development that builds tension incident after incident, interaction after interaction. Without giving away the end game, what "Grant Comes East" does is disabuse us of the notion that the war would have been all but over had Lee won at Gettysburg. With his army still outnumbered and his supply line never able to match the North, Lee and the South still had an uphill battle to fight (pun intended).

My only complaint about "Grant Comes East" is the lack of emphasis on Grant in particular and the North in general. Lee, his Generals, and his armies are emphasized more and painted in a better light than Grant and the northern forces. This is somewhat explained by the nature of Volume II, yet, more colorful development of the North would have made this five-star book a five plus!
