The Killer Angels
The Killer Angels
by Michael Shaara
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.64

3.0 out of 5 stars Hmmmmm...not sure about the format, 25 July 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Killer Angels (Paperback)
The book is readable and accurately follows events but I kept thinking - why did he not write a NON-fiction account of the Gettysburg battle? Clearly he was very knowledgeable about the events of those days in early July 1863. In truth I found the imagined thoughts of the main participants irritating. I am not sure if the fact-fiction format quite works.

For a brilliant civil war general and later U.S. president, this is an amazingly well written, patently honest and clear account of his life. It was an outstanding success when first published and is still an easily read and fresh insight into his life and times. I enjoyed the book very much.
