The Killer Angels

Book 2, Civil War Trilogy - The Classic Novel of the Civil War

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


“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.

Killer Angels

Awesome! Could not put it down, literally. Goes inside the battle, but more, inside the minds of the key generals. Talks of God, honor, death, war, admiration and friendship of the deepest kind. The fog of war, valor, fear, stench, stupidity, luck, uncertainty of information, responsibility of command, foppish sentimentality, terrified religiosity, uncommon bravery, blooming pride and booming cannon are all here. I wish I had read this book years ago. I wish every puffed up self-congratulating politician who may see political opportunity in pitting brother against brother would read this first and beg forgiveness. Are we all red meat - killer angels. Or something more?


An outstanding read. I do wish there was more from the Union side, as most of the story is from the Confederate angle. Still, a gripping read.

The Killer Angels

Excellent reading. Unable to put down.
