      • bioText: Michael Shaara was born in Jersey City in 1929 and graduated from Rutgers University in 1951. His early science fiction short stories were published in Galaxy magazine in 1952. He later began writing other works of fiction and published more than seventy short stories in many magazines, including The Saturday Evening Post, Cosmopolitan, and Redbook. His first novel, The Broken Place, was published in 1968. But it was a simple family vacation to Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, in 1966 that gave him the inspiration for his greatest achievement, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Killer Angels, published in 1974. Michael Shaara went on to write two more novels, The Noah Conspiracy and For Love of the Game, which was published posthumously after his death in 1988.

      • source: GENERAL H. NORMAN SCHWARZKOPF
      • content: "The best and most realistic historical novel about war I have ever read."
      • premium: False
      • source: JAMES M. MCPHERSON
        Author of Battle Cry of Freedom
      • content: "My favorite historical novel . . . A superb re-creation of the Battle of Gettysburg, but its real importance is its insight into what the war was about, and what it meant."

      • source: KEN BURNS
        Filmmaker, The Civil War
      • content: "Remarkable . . . A book that changed my life . . . I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive."
      • premium: False
      • source: The Seattle Times
      • content: "Shaara carries [the reader] swiftly and dramatically to a climax as exciting as if it were being heard for the first time."
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: Stephen Hoye's reading of Shaara's Pulitzer Prize-winning text captures the tension of war even more than the movie GETTYSBURG. As an account of that great battle, it is filled with the sounds and smells of a spring day at one moment, the stench of decay the next. Likewise Hoye's pacing follows the battle with confused but rapid energy at one moment, thoughtful stillness the next. Most striking, however, Hoye's characterizations ring with astounding life. Lee is ever the easy, grace-filled father figure of our imagining; Longstreet has a voice to match his deep, thoughtful misgivings about this engagement; and Colonel Joshua Chamberlain speaks in a distinctive Maine accent, just as one would expect of a Bowdoin College classics professor. Both Hoye and Shaara have clearly done their homework, creating a package befitting this thirtieth-anniversary edition. P.E.F. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine
