The Killer Angels - The author brings the Battle of Gettysburg and the Civil War to life in this wonderful novel. Lee the honorable virginian gentleman soldier who facing a choice between fighting his country or his home resigns from the army and heads to his native state only to become The greatest General and possibly the most revered soldier in U. The great irony is that Shaara’s novel was a major influence on Burns’s decision to create his mini-series in the first place and Burns adopted to a great degree the tone and style employed by Shaara. Killer Angels by Michael Shaara is not a new book, in fact it won the Pulitzer Prize for fiction back in 1975. First, the actions of Chamberlain and the 20th Maine Infantry on Little Round Top have achieved enormous public awareness.

I never knew I could alternate sides so quickly in my compassion: one moment cheering for the North to take it, the next minute, unexpectedly hoping the South would prevail.C., he hopes to draw the Union army into battle and inflict a crushing defeat, which will bring an end to the war.

Narrator Stephen Hoye delivered amazing gravitas and drama to the characters and battles, especially the ending chapters.

Beware that the Shaaras and Jeff Shaara in particular (author of the bracketing books in this Trilogy, gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure) subscribe a bit to the Lost Cause narrative, that the war was about something other than slavery, that the southern generals really weren't all that bad, especially Lee. It's based on the Battle of Gettysburg and looks at the action through the eyes of the significant characters of the different stages of the short but bloody battle. After the war, he would win multiple terms as Maine’s governor as well as eventually becoming president of his old college.
