Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A slipcase boxed set of three classic Civil War novels: Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning The Killer Angels and Jeff Shaara's Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure.

Review:

"[The Killer Angels is] remarkable....A book that changed my life....I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive." Ken Burns, filmmaker, The Civil War

Review:

"[Gods and Generals is a] worthy companion to The Killer Angels....[Jeff] Shaara brilliantly charts the war, the exploits of the combatants, and their motivations. He also concisely shows how the early parts of the campaign unfolded. His accounts of the battles of Williamsburg, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville are exciting....Though the story of the Civil War has been told many times, this is the rare version that conveys what it must have felt like." Chicago Sun-Times

Review:

"[The Last Full Measure is a] worthy companion to its two predecessors....These characters come alive as complex, heroic, and flawed men....You are with [Robert E.] Lee, a deeply religious man, as he first begins to wonder if the Confederate cause will prevail....You ride with [Ulysses S.] Grant to see the mounds of Union dead at Cold Harbor, and you share his sickening realization that thousands are dead because of his miscalculation....You are at [Joshua] Chamberlain's bedside as he fights to recover from nearly mortal wounds....Each book is masterful in its own way and taken together, they are unmatched in the body of Civil War literature." The Baltimore Sun

About the Author

Michael Shaara was born in Jersey City in 1929 and graduated from Rutgers University in 1951. His early science fiction short stories were published in Galaxy magazine in 1952. He later began writing other works of fiction and published more than seventy short stories in many magazines, including The Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, and Redbook. His first novel, The Broken Place, was published in 1968. But it was a simple family vacation to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1966 that gave him the inspiration for his greatest achievement, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Killer Angels, published in 1974. Michael Shaara went on to write two more novels, The Noah Conspiracy and For Love of the Game, which was published posthumously after his death in 1988.
