    More Than Worthy

    It's one of the most highly reviewed historical fiction works in modern literature. It's evident why by chapter 3. engaging dialogue and worth reading fof Longstreet alone.

    The Killer Angels

    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.

    Very detailed

    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.

    Now we have an idea what they were thinking

    The late Michael Shaara's story of Gettysburg is a journey through the minds and emotions of some of the senior officers on both sides: North and South. Shaara writes historical fiction, weaving facts through what may have gone on in the minds of Lee, Longstreet, Chamberlain, Buford and others whose roles as senior officers were pivotal in the deciding battle of the U.S. Civil War. In weaving his narrative from the intensely personal perspectives of his central characters, Michael Shaara adds depth and dimension to why the North prevailed, what choices Confederate General Robert E. Lee (who held the initiative throughout the battle) may have had, and how it felt to be there. Why is the Civil War still such a part of the collective American psyche? Michael Shaara's book has a few pieces of that jigsaw puzzle for thoughtful and reflective readers. I have heard his son, Michael, speak before a group of U.S. state legislators at which I attended as an Ontario Member of Provincial Parliament. Father and son add silken thread in their weaving of the tapestry of history. Their books are worthy reads for students and aficionados of America's seminal conflict between 1861 and 1865.
