“My favorite historical novel . . . a superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant.”—James M. McPherson
In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable—the dramatic story of the battleground for America’s destiny.
BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory.
Two views, one nation!
A story of a battle that shaped a nation not from a tactical view but the human point of view. This book brings you into the troops campfires, you will feel the heat and the pain. No other civil war book will bring you closer to understanding how the Americans on both side fought, felt and died for one country.

I've never taken much interest in this time period, but found this story very compelling. This book has many accolades and it's easy to see why. This story brings the realization of what it must feel like for people of any generation to have to face the ones you love on the battlefield and what it would feel like to live with that for the rest of your days.
