The author of the bestselling "Gods and Generals" and "The Last Full Measure" reveals with new immediacy how philosophers became fighters and how a scattered group of colonies became the United States of America.Hide synopsis

Audience: General/trade. "Jeff Shaara is the New York Times bestselling author of Rise to Rebellion and Gone for Soldiers, as well as Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure--two novels that complete the Civil War trilogy that began with his father's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic The Killer Angel."
Okay, the first half is excruciatingly slow I will admit to that. However the second half when the war starts in Boston picks up and moves very fast. I had to stop reading it just before Franklin comes back to the US because it was slow and quite honestly boring, so I put it down for 8 months. Picked it up and started where I left off and it just moved very quickly after it. I am looking forward to The Glorious Cause.
This book puts the reader on the scene in the American Revolution. Great read. The book is like new, but I certainly did not pay a new price for it. A real bargain. Keep up the good work, Alibris. I am on a fixed retirement income and must watch the dollars and cents very closely. Alibris makes it possible for me to maintain my personal library.
A very good rendering of the events and people leading up to the revolution. Now moving on to the second volume, "The Glorious Cause", to complete the series. Also suggest David McCullough's "1776" as a complimentary light reading of events during the same period.
