After 30 years and with three million copies in print, Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War classic, The Killer Angels, remains as vivid and powerful as the day it was originally published.

July 1863. The Confederate Army of Northern Virginia is invading the North. General Robert E. Lee has made this daring and massive move with 70,000 men in a determined effort to draw out the Union Army of the Potomac and mortally wound it. His right hand is General James Longstreet, a brooding man who is loyal to Lee but stubbornly argues against his plan. Opposing them is an unknown factor: General George Meade, who has taken command of the Army only two days before what will be perhaps the crucial battle of the Civil War.

In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation's history, two armies fight for two conflicting dreams. One dreams of freedom, the other of a way of life. More than rifles and bullets are carried into battle. The soldiers carry memories. Promises. Love. And more than men fall on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty are also the casualties of war.

The Killer Angels is unique, sweeping, unforgettable, a dramatic re-creation of the battleground for America's destiny.

    " an amazing story of the battle of Gettysburg. Short fast reading and a brilliiant depiction of some of the main characters of the Civil War. "

    " This was my third attempt to read this book, which is definitely a well-written account of the Battle of Gettysburg. There were just too darned many characters and too much battle detail--it just wearied me. I think it's a man's book. "

    " 10 word review: the definitive reader for Gettysburg, should be required for HS "

    " I did cry at the end; where it was written about Chamberlain after the war in Gettysburg. His respect and love of mankind was evident in his conduct towards all men. My favourite war hero was Chamberlain. I did have a hard time understanding the southern men. I found them to be prideful and egotistical. I went into this book knowing little about the civil war, and its soldiers, so I did have to keep referring to the front of the book where it described the men. "
