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.
