Gods and Generalsby Jeff Shaara
Synopses & Reviews
The heartbreaking saga of the years preceding The Killer Angels
"SHAARA'S BEAUTIFULLY SENSITIVE NOVEL DELVES DEEPLY in the empathetic realm of psycho-history, where enemies do not exist--just mortal men forced to make crucial decisions and survive on the same battlefield. . . . [He] succeeds with his historical novel through fully realized characters who were forced to decide their loyalties amid the horrors of their dividing nation."
--San Francisco Chronicle
The nationally bestselling prequel to the classic, Pulitzer Prize-winning Civil War novel The Killer Angels
"A well-researched, plausible, page-turning historical novel". — Chicago Sun-Times
Soon to be a major motion picture from the director of Gettysburg. Filming to begin in late 1998/early 1999 with the same cast!
About the Author
Jeff Shaara was born in 1952 in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, and graduated from Florida State University in 1974. For many years he was a dealer in rare coins but sold his Tampa, Florida, business in 1988 upon the death of his father, Michael Shaara.
As manager of his father's estate, Jeff developed a friendship with film director Ron Maxwell, whose film Gettysburg was based on The Killer Angels. It was Maxwell who suggested that Jeff continue the story Michael Shaara had begun. Gods and Generals is that novel. Jeff is also the author of The Last Full Measure, the third novel in this father-son trilogy.
He and his wife, Lynne, divide their time between Tampa, Florida, and Missoula, Montana.
