The killer angels the classic novel of the civil war
The Killer Angels (The Civil War Trilogy, #2) by Michael ShaaraIn the four most bloody and courageous days of our nations 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 Americas destiny.
