He also likes to write novels of alternate history. Author Gingrich is particularly famous for writing the series of Civil War novels, which includes the books Gettysburgh Trilogy. The other popular series written by him include the Revolutionary War and the Pacific War series. In addition to writing, author Gingrich is also known to help end the 40 years of ruling of the House by Democrats by becoming the House’s Speaker. When he ended his political career, Gingrich began working as a political consultant and analyst. Author Gingrich started his writing career in the year 1987 with the publication of his debut nonfiction book titled Window of Opportunity. The first full length that he wrote is titled 1945, which was released in 1995. Gingrich was born as Newton McPherson on June 17, 1943, in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, U.S. He shifted to Georgia and went on to become a reputed American politician. Gingrich got the opportunity to serve as the 50th Speaker between the years 1995 and 1999. He was a representative of the 6th Republican congressional district of Georgia starting from 1979 up to his resignation in the year 1999. Gingrich later became a candidate for the presidential nomination of Republican Party.

During the 1970s, author Gingrich used to teach geography and history at the West Georgia University. At the same time, he also contested election two times and finally won in 1978. Being regarded as the architect of the ‘Contract with America’, author Gingrich played an important role in the victory of Republican in the congressional election of 1994. The Time magazine labeled him as the most influential man in 1995. Due to a poor show by the Republicans in the election of 1998 and the resulting pressure from his colleagues, Gingrich had to resign from his post of speakership in the same year. Eventually, he left the House completely in 1999. Since his resignation, author Gingrich has been actively involved in debates over public policy and political consultation. He also founded a few think tanks of policy. Author Gingrich has written a total of 27 books in his career. Gingrich was brought up as a Lutheran and spent most his time growing up as a Baptist. In 2009, he decided to convert to Roman Catholic. Gingrich married 3 times in his life, the first 2 of which ended in divorce. Gingrich was believed to have been involved in numerous post marital affairs which caused his divorces. Since 2000, he has been living in marriage with his 3rd wife named Callista Gingrich. Author Gingrich and his first wife had w children, who live with Gingrich now after their divorce. In 1961, author Gingrich completed his graduation from the Baker High School, located in Georgia. From the time of his teenage years, he has been interested in the field of politics. Later in 1965, he earned his Bachelor of Arts of degree from the Emory University in history. This was followed by an M.A., from the Tulane University, as well as a Ph.D. The next 6 years after his graduation, he lived in Brussels to work on dissertation. Later, he was selected to teach history in college in 1970. When he was denied tenure, Gingrich decided to leave the college and went on to get elected to the Congress in 1978.

One of the successful novel series written by Newt Gingrich is known as the Gettysburg series. It is comprised of 3 books in total, which were released between the years 1980 and 2004. The first alternate history book of the series is titled ‘Gettysburgh’. It was released in 2003 by St Martin publication. In this book, author Gingrich has penned an alternate way for General Lee, and has shown that he might have triumphed. It is full of military strategy, dramatic battles, captivating details, etc. The novel serves as an excellent entry into the literature of Civil War and shows the war realities. The story opens in the year 1863, when General Lee moved with his North Virginia Army to attack and claim the North. Lee advances his men to the sweeping operation and acts in the same manner as he did in all his previously won battles. General Lee knows it very well that he has a very good chance of claiming ultimate victory. Following his orders, the lieutenants move forward with the Gettysburg Campaign. Before writing this book, author Gingrich carried out an extensive research work along with William Forstchen, who co-authored the book with Gingrich. The two have depicted the action packed drama of the war in a well mannered way. They have tried to tell the readers how General Lee’s victory would have helped to change the nation’s destiny forever. In the end, the novel tells the story of glory and true heroism during the trying hours of America.

Another mind blowing book in the series is entitled ‘Never Call Retreat’. This book was first released in 1980 and then again in 2007 as a new edition. Authors Gingrich, Fortschen, and Hanser have continued the series with the remarkable story of Gettysburg and have tried to answer the questions of ‘what-if’ related to the Civil War of America. The start of the novel shows that General Lee makes an attempt to end the war after gaining victories over Union Mills and Gettysburg by launching an attack on Washington D.C. But, he fails in his attempt. However, the remainder of the Potomac Union Army gets trapped while securing Washington. The valiant warriors get destroyed. Now, there seems to be only a single hope left for Lincoln, that General Grant can succeed in saving the cause of the Union. In August 1863, Lee pursues the Union troops near the Susquehanna banks, but loses his balance after learning that Grant has also crossed the river along with 70,000 men. Central Maryland becomes the place of collision of the 2 armies. What follows next is a bloody battle for a week along the Monocacy Creek banks. Looking at the fierceness of the battle and the dedication of both the men in not giving up until the end, people believe it to be the final battle. With this novel, authors William and Gingrich have tried to bring out all their talents of critical acclaim to depict what seems destined to turn into a classic story.

    Will Newt Gingrich be writing any more books in the Major Brooke Grant series. Would love to see more in that series.

    • Paul: 4 months ago

      I have only recently read the series and found it difficult to accept the ending in the last title, ‘Vengeance’. My wife felt the same. It ends without a definite conclusion and the expectation that there is more to come. I can only wonder why or what kept Mr. Gingrich from going on to a true endingl
