Description

The New York Times bestselling prequel to the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic The Killer Angels
 
In this brilliantly written epic novel, Jeff Shaara traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders from the first gathering clouds of the Civil War. Here is Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, a hopelessly by-the-book military instructor and devout Christian who becomes the greatest commander of the Civil War; Winfield Scott Hancock, a captain of quartermasters who quickly establishes himself as one of the finest leaders of the Union army; Joshua Chamberlain, who gives up his promising academic career and goes on to become one of the most heroic soldiers in American history; and Robert E. Lee, never believing until too late that a civil war would ever truly come to pass. Profound in its insights into the minds and hearts of those who fought in the war, Gods and Generals creates a vivid portrait of the soldiers, the battlefields, and the tumultuous times that forever shaped the nation.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory.

Publishers Weekly Review

Customer Reviews

Gods and Generals

This is a really good overview of the first two years of the Civil War. I really enjoyed Jeff Shaara's concentration on principal characters as a means of telling the history. He brings a humanity to an otherwise sad time.

Gods and Generals

If you need a book for your social studies class I recommend this one. I'm not a big reader but I got through this.
