The roar of cannons at Gettysburg, the death and destruction at Manassas, the vicious fighting at Vicksburg -- critical battles won by a daring gamble. Combining elements of famous actions that have kept historians riveted for years, with lesser known incidents that still hold incredible drama, sheds light on how baffles were won -- and lost.
