About the Author

Michael Shaara was born in Jersey City in 1928 and graduated from Rutgers University in 1951. His early science fiction short stories were published in Galaxy magazine in 1952. He later began writing other works of fiction and published more than seventy short stories in many magazines, including The Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, and Redbook. His first novel, The Broken Place, was published in 1968. But it was a simple family vacation to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1964 that gave him the inspiration for his greatest achievement, the Pulitzer Prize–winning novel The Killer Angels, published in 1974. Michael Shaara went on to write two more novels, The Noah Conspiracy and For Love of the Game, which was published after his death in 1988.

Jeff Shaara is the New York Times bestselling author of A Chain of Thunder, A Blaze of Glory, The Final Storm, No Less Than Victory, The Steel Wave, The Rising Tide, To the Last Man, The Glorious Cause, Rise to Rebellion, and Gone for Soldiers, as well as Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure—two novels that complete the Civil War trilogy that began with his father’s Pulitzer Prize–winning classic, The Killer Angels. Shaara was born into a family of Italian immigrants in New Brunswick, New Jersey. He grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, and graduated from Florida State University. He lives again in Tallahassee.

These are okay. Jeff doesn't write nearly as well as his father, and that lack can be a bit distracting, but they're still interesting.

I just saw the movie yesterday. LOVED the insight that was in it. The personal side of the solders was the best. The movie was done well. So I'm getting the book. Can't wait for Gettesburg to come out in theaters.

If you are going to read any books on the Civil War, then read these three books. I also suggest watching the movies that are based on these books, which are 'Gettysburg' and 'God's and Generals' that will be released February '03.

Once I started, I could not stop until all three books were read. Moves and counter moves described like a game of chess. Emphasizes the brillant leadership of Lee and the power of the north.

This is one of the best books on the Battle of Gettysburg ever written. Michael Sharra brings the past alive and into the readers imagination as if you were stting in the middle of the battle field during the whole thing. I could not put it down. Even when I read it for the second time it was just as good if not better than the first time. This is definatley a book that everyone should read!

I was never a fan of historical books, but I picked this book up at the recommendation of a friend of mine. I was totally engrossed by the development and presentation of the Gettsburg conflict. It really came alive to me through the eyes of both the generals and the common foot soldier. I highly recommend this book to any and all
