book reviews by Althea

The Killer Angels – Michael Shaara ***

Leave a comment

Well-executed, as an embellished recounting of what happened at Gettysburg…it seems well-researched, and gives insight into the minds of men at war. but it doesn’t really have everything I look for in a novel.
I can definitely see that it would be LOVED by players of strategy
games, tacticians, and military buffs.
I doubt that there is a better book out there that gives a blow-by-blow recounting of the Battle of Gettysburg, so, four stars.
