Gods and Generals
A Novel of the Civil WarBook - 2011
The extraordinary lives, passions, and careers of four great military leaders-- Stonewall Jackson, Winfield Scott Hancock, Joshua Chamberlain, and Robert E. Lee-- come to a climax as Union and Confederate forces clash on the battlefields of the Civil War. A worthy companion to The Killer Angels... Shaara brilliantly charts the war, the exploits of the combatants and their motivations. He also concisely shows how the early parts of the campaign unfolded. His accounts of the battles of Williamsburg, Antietam, Fredericksburg and Chancellorsville are exciting... Though the story of the Civil War has been told many times, this is the rare version that conveys what it must have felt like.
