The Killer Angels is one of the most interesting books of war literature I’ve read. It details the battle from the perspective of a number of generals and other military leaders and brings out both the moral and military crises that marked the Civil War. The Red Badge of Courage and Tolstoy’s portrait of Napoleon in War and Peace influence Shaara’s perspective that war is often something that people, even generals, find themselves caught in and that no one entirely controls.
