About This Item

First edition with all the requisite first printing points; an absolutely stunning copy of this book which is notoriously hard to find in collectible condition....this being a near fine copy with a tight binding and clean white pages that shows some mild shelf wear to the spine ends and a small PO stamp on the front free end paper (interestingly his name is Per Odd Keul, an extensive world traveler and a cancer survivor); housed in a fine dust jacket that is basically flawless save for some very mild shelfwear on the top spine end....a beautiful copy of this Pulitzer Prize winning novel and THE most important work of civil war fiction....protected in a mylar cover.

Synopsis

The Killer Angels is a historical novel by Michael Shaara that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1975. The book tells the story of four days of the Battle of Gettysburg in the American Civil War: June 30, 1863, as the troops of both the Union and the Confederacy move into battle around the town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, and July 1, July 2, and July 3, when the battle was fought. The story is character driven and told from the perspective of various protagonists.

Reviews

On Mar 26 2017, a reader said:
Brilliant depiction of various characters, from the historically pre-eminent (Lee, Chamberlain) to the minor (Spy) to the fictional participants at Gettysburg. Provides a psychological profile of those who made this hallowed ground.
