Inhaltsangabe: Tom Carhart's latest book, LOST TRIUMPH: LEE'S REAL PLAN AT GETTYSBURG -- AND WHY IT FAILED, with a foreword by James McPherson, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM, artfully and precisely explains Robert E. Lee's actual battle plan for the third day at Gettysburg and what went wrong. Believing that Lee was too astute a commander to rely exclusively on Pickett's Charge, Tom Carhart painstakingly re-examines what happened that day. His dramatic conclusions are drawn from detailed analysis of Lee's knowledge of military strategy gleaned during Lee's military career and years as a cadet at West Point, from intimate knowledge of the actual terrain and military positions at Gettysburg, and from close examination of a wide array of primary and secondary source materials.
Über den Autor: Tom Carhart, Ph.D., graduated from West Point in 1966 and subsequently served as an infantry platoon leader with 101st Airborne Division in Vietnam and as an Advisor to the South Vietnamese forces. He was awarded two Purple Hearts for wounds suffered in combat. After teaching French at West Point, he left the Army and received a law degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. He subsequently served as Editor of European Taxation in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
Upon returning to the United States, Tom studied economics at the Rand Graduate School while working for the Rand Corporation in Santa Monica, CA. He then returned to Europe as an international corporate lawyer at the Archibald law firm in Brussels representing multinational corporations before the European Economic Community. In later years, Tom again worked for the Army as a civilian policy analyst and historian. In 1998, he received his Ph.D. in American and military history from Princeton University.
Tom is the author of a number of books: Battles and Campaigns in Vietnam (1984), The Offering (1987), Battlefront Vietnam (1991), Iron Soldiers (1994), West Point Warriors (2002), and Lost Triumph: Lee's Real Plan at Gettysburg and Why it Failed (2005). Currently, Tom is completing a book on the history of the Judge Advocate General Corps for the Department of the Army and is researching his next commercial book.
He presently lives in suburban D.C. with his wife and two children, where he writes and is an adjunct professor of history at University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, VA.
