Ronald F. Maxwell (nacido el 3 de enero de 1949) es un director y guionista de cine independiente nacido en Clifton, New Jersey. Es mayormente conocido por dirigir la película de 1993[1] Gettysburg y la de 2003[2] Gods and Generals, sobre la Guerra Civil Estadounidense. La tercera parte de la trilogía sobre la Guerra civil, escrita por Michael Shaara y su hijo Jeffrey Shaara, The Last Full Measure, está aún a falta de financiación. Tras el estreno de las dos primeras partes, Ted Turner, abandonó el proyecto debido a la pobre acogida de Gods and Generals.

Nacido en New Jersey, Maxwell cursó estudios en la Clifton High School.[3] Graduado por la Universidad de Nueva York (NYU) Institute of Film a finales de los sesenta, es miembro de la Writers Guild of America, East, Directors Guild of America y de la Academia de las Artes y las Ciencias Cinematográficas de Hollywood.

Maxwell's four-hour cinematic re-creation of the battle that was the turning point of the Civil War has a stately tone and meticulous attention to historical detail that make it feel more like an epic documentary than a dramatic film. "Gettysburg," adapted by Mr. Maxwell from Michael Shaara's novel "The Killer Angels," limits itself to the first three days of July 1863, when 150,000 soldiers threw themselves into a battle in which more than a quarter of them became casualties."
