Best book on Little Round Top to date

Finally the story of Little Round Top has been told from a southern point of view. My first experience with Little Round Top occurred many years ago as I stood on this mountain top in shock, gazing down at the impossible battle conditions of 02 July 1863. From that day on I've had an insatiable desire to know more. The author gives credit to southern generals and soldiers alike in a much needed account of the southern experience at Gettysburg. Southern Alabama is well represented here. The history is well researched and agrees with other books I've read on Gettysburg. Only this book digs deeper into the southern experience like no other I've read. The book's expert historical account from the southern point of view is the book's most commanding attribute. The lack of maps as some reviewers claim is a hindrance is misplaced. A minimal understanding of the Gettysburg battlefield is all that's needed to understand the battle for Little Round Top. Me thinks that is only an excuse to bash a very good book. I liked it so much, I will be purchasing copies for Christmas presents.
