Lee's army is 70,000 strong and has won nearly every battle it has fought. The Union Army is 80,000 strong and accustomed to defeat and retreat. Thus begins the Battle of Gettysburg, the four most bloody and courageous days of America's history. Two armies fight for two goals - one for freedom, the other for a way of life.Hide synopsis

Deeply moving and continuously fascinating story that focuses on a single momentous battle at Gettysburg over a few days in the Summer of 1863. It is not only skillfully written but is full of details that bring to life the experiences of common soldiers, both Union and Confederate, right up to Generals like Lee, Longstreet and Meade. Chapters written from the point of view of various officers never failed to hold my attention. Overall, I finished this book with the sense that I had a new appreciation of the American Civil War.
Killer Angels puts you in the driver's seat at the battle of Gettysburg, moving among the generals and brigade commanders and across the fields where 45,000 soldiers died in two days of battle. Shaara conveys the essential characters of men like Lee and Longstreet. The battle comes alive, bringing the reader into the action as no nonfictional account could do. First rate storytelling in an historical context.
this book is one of the best on the battle of gettysburg.very hard to put down.if you have been to gettysburg,you know how confusing the battle was.he makes it clear how it was fought.now i have to go back and walk the battle ground .
I bought the series after reading two books by the same author on the Revolutionary War.
All were great! Truly historical novels that provide a very interesting insight into the history of the USA.
Great product - Great price
