Great Historical Fiction Oct 11, 2007
Any lover of historical fiction or of the Civil War will enjoy this book. It personalizes rather than politicizes the war, drawing the reader into the experience. The writing is a bit clunky in places, but overall Killer Angels is a very good read. The character of Colonel Joshua Chamberlain is an especially well-developed and dynamic character who shows the stress of the incredibly difficult situations this divisive war forced its leaders into.
