Montgomery’s unplanned battle of attrition, as unplanned as the Americans’ bloody slog through the bocage, had of course been handicapped by the delays caused by the appalling weather in mid-June. Yet British and American alike had gravely underestimated the tenacity and discipline of Wehrmacht troops.

While far costlier clashes would follow over the next two-and-a-half years of war, to this day the Battle of Antietam remains the bloodiest single-day in all of American history - worse than both Pearl Harbor and 9/11. THE AMERICAN CIVIL was entering its 18th month in September of 1862 when two colossal armies collided 60 miles northwest of Washington . in a quiet corner of Maryland.
