Jeff Shaara is the son of the Pulitzer Prize winning author Michael Shaara. He starts where his father left off in "The Killer Angels". "Gods and Generals" is the second best book on the Civil War I've ever read. "The Killer Angels" is the first.

This is both fact neatly entwined with fiction. It is a classic recount of the Civil War in Virginia prior to Gettysburg told from both sides of the battle. As such it ranks among such classics as Crane's The Red Badge of Courage, Churchill's The Crisis, and the non-fiction of Bruce Catton. It is a striking contrast of the two combatant armies.

This book keeps you involved and excited. It is as if you are actually in the character of the main participants. Jeff Shaara is simply the beat. If you haven't read any work by Mr. Shaara you are missing one of the if not the best authors of today in this genre!
