Product Description

Shaara, Michael.  THE KILLER ANGELS: A NOVEL.    NY: David McKay (1974).  First edition.  “This is the Crane type ‘male’ novel of battle tactics, although Shaara’s canvas is much wider as he moves from one character to another and one battle situation to the next.

Unfortunately for collectors, the novel was poorly made and cheaply produced and is thus rarely found in fine condition.” [Larry Olpin, “Collecting American Civil War Novels,” FIRSTS, January, 1996].

“My favorite historical novel…a superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg.”
– James M McPherson.

“A book that changed my life…”- Ken Burns.

Previously owned by Alice Cromie, Chicago novelist and Civil War expert (affixed name sticker on front fly).  

Very good condition; one page with edge bump; dust jacket has just a few edge scrapes, else very good and bright.
