"I'm john batchelor this is the john batchelor show i'm continuing my very happy conversation with bevin alexander his book is sunset at gettysburg ancient military wisdom in the modern world lee is deployed and meet is deployed meads position is superior because it's defensive lee has a choice he can try to flank and that's what becomes round top and little round top the attempt by the confederates to climb up a hill and get around to the right or to the left of me and flag that would be the optimum and at one point there is an opportunity to take a little round top itself and put cannons up there which would have turned the whole union line it was not it did not happen they pulled back from that and they tried again and again to assault the left flank the twentieth maine and other units held out famously and that left lee frustrated so what are his choices now coming the clothes the battle to close at the battle then of course nothing has been a chief the entire second day of the battle has been aborted because the union army has held its position very well along the cemetery region and just to the east of it and also along little round top that they're big about where the twentieth maine hell so beautifully and they resolved then is a a defeat by the confederate army on the second day now so then what can be done what can be done on on now the third day of the battle long street goes back to lee once again and said let us still do what i told ask you to do on the end of the first day and is simply move to the south the confederate army can still win this battle by moving to the south at least says no i'm not going to do that i'm going to attack the center of the union army on in the middle of of cemetery ridge now that is absolutely contrary to any common sense whatsoever and it's exactly what sunset says never ever you see there's no possibility now the only this this is where specifically says something which i think is incredibly important says a general should never rely on the bravery of their soldiers to win battles they should put their soldiers in positions where they can export victory but they do not have to achieve victory simply by their bravery and by their sacrifices and the only possible way the confederacy could have won the battle of gettysburg was enormous over in super human sacrifices on the part of the of the other soldiers and they actually tried to do that and the and pickett's charge which is what which happened on that day the third day was it was super human effort on the part of the confederate army to win this battle by their bravery it was simply impossible because it was the odds were completely stacked against them and one of the ways i've read son son i check with you bevan is that when you're faced with a situation where only a direct frontal assault crashing against well regulated formations is your choice you should decline battle and withdraw absolutely withdrawal they convert army could still have pulled right back to place called south mountain which is only about few miles to the west right around this cash down a few miles to the west of gettysburg they could still have pulled back to this position and stopped and waited and the and the union army would would've still been obliged to attack the confederate army then because they were still in in in the north in pennsylvania and it could not be allowed to be there so even at the even in the third day they could they could have won the battle by simply withdrawing and those decisions and the highwater mark of the confederacy and lee who took all the blame for the failure at gettysburg deserves it because of his obstinacy and refusal to follow what is common sensical about you attack the enemy where he's weak not where he stressed entirely correct and then and lead deserves all to blame that he can possibly put up on him 'cause he actually lost a civil war for the south that day now let's speak of a confederate general stonewall jackson who died because of friendly fire but he was a man who understood sun sai intimately and maneuvering and that the reason you you always attack where the enemies not you go for the.
