The Killer Angels: The Classic Novel of the Civil War by Michael Shaara

The History Store

In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation's history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. Far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable -- the dramatic story of the battleground for America's destiny. The edition from Ballantine Books ( published by Random House) has maps provided by Don Pitcher, "To the Reader," a foreword, and an afterword by the author, as well as an excerpt from THE LAST FULL MEASURE by Jeff Shaara. Using superlatives such as "absorbing," "compelling," and "remarkable," many literary critics and other writers regard THE KILLER ANGELS as the best Civil War novel ever written - not only for its expert narration but also for its insight into what the war was about and what it meant. Why not see for yourself?
