2nd printing of 1993 reissue. Remainder mark on top page edge. xix, [1], 374 pp. 8vo. 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, Author of Battle Cry of Freedom. In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation's history, two armies fought for two 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. Shattered futures, forgotten innocence, and crippled beauty were also the casualties of war. The Killer Angels is unique, sweeping, unforgettable--a dramatic re-creation of the battleground for America's destiny. I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive.--Ken Burns, Filmmaker, The Civil War The Killer Angels (1974) is a historical novel by Michael Shaara that was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction in 1975.

The story is character-driven and told from the perspective of various protagonists. A film adaptation of the novel, titled Gettysburg, was released in 1993.
