“My favorite historical novel . . . 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
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.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory.

The best book about the Civil War that I have read. It helps one better understand what happened in the decisive Battle of Gettysburg, and what it meant to some of the key officers on both sides

Get into the mind of the generals, their strategies and reasons. The book also contains maps to show the situation more clearly to the reader.

Rarely do I read historic novels, but this was a book club selection so I was determined to complete it. Much to my surprise I enjoyed the book and actually learned a great deal about the Civil War and it's generals, both North and South. I Would recommend the book to anyone who enjoys good books.
