The New York Times bestselling prequel to the Pulitzer Prize–winning classic The Killer Angels
In this brilliantly written epic novel, Jeff Shaara traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders from the first gathering clouds of the Civil War. Here is Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, a hopelessly by-the-book military instructor and devout Christian who becomes the greatest commander of the Civil War; Winfield Scott Hancock, a captain of quartermasters who quickly establishes himself as one of the finest leaders of the Union army; Joshua Chamberlain, who gives up his promising academic career and goes on to become one of the most heroic soldiers in American history; and Robert E. Lee, never believing until too late that a civil war would ever truly come to pass. Profound in its insights into the minds and hearts of those who fought in the war, Gods and Generals creates a vivid portrait of the soldiers, the battlefields, and the tumultuous times that forever shaped the nation.

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

Gods and Generals
April 4th, 2015
It was a very good read. You almost felt like you were in the inner leadership circle at times. Planning the battles and sharing in the emotions of the wins and defeats. A must read for anyone interested in the Civil War. The reinforced lesson for me is this was a brutal war, and should have been resolved in a more peaceful way.
