Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0345422473, Mass Market Paperback)In a prequel of sorts to his father Michael Shaara's 1974 epic novel The Killer Angels, Jeff Shaara explores the lives of Generals Lee, Hancock, Jackson and Chamberlain as the pivotal Battle of Gettysburg approaches. Shaara captures the disillusionment of both Lee and Hancock early in their careers, Lee's conflict with loyalty, Jackson's overwhelming Christian ethic and Chamberlain's total lack of experience, while illustrating how each compensated for shortcomings and failures when put to the test. The perspectives of the four men, particularly concerning the battles at Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville, make vivid the realities of war.

The Civil War as seen by generals on both sides of the conflict. They are the Confederacy's Lee and Jackson, and the Union's Chamberlain and Hancock. The novel follows them from the start of the war to just before the Battle of Gettysburg. A prequel to The Killer Angels, a 1974 novel by the author's late father.
