First Published: 1974
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.
Quotes from The Killer Angels
There’s nothing so much like a god on earth as a General on a battlefield.
Why do there have to be men like that, men who enjoy another man’s dying?
A man who has been shot at is a new realist, and what do you say to a realist when the war is a war of ideals?
