What the community says about The Killer Angels (Civil War Trilogy)
- "For such a remarkable book I am not surprised it won the Pulitzer Prize. Each side in this famous battle is fairly presented. As a young boy I visited the site of this great battle and my take, until I read Angels of Death, was that Pickett made a reckless charge (much like The Charge of The Light Brigade) which was doomed from the start"
- "The Killer Angels is one of the most interesting books of war literature.It's a war. It's tragic. The beauty of this book is that it delves into the real or imagined feelings of the characters involved and makes you really stand in their shoes (or no shoes as the case may be). Such heroism, such unfortunate circumstances, so much death and heartbreak."
- "Picked up this historical fiction book about the Battle of Gettysburg for my history buff husband. He ended up finishing it during a recent weekend beach trip because he could not put it down. This Pulitzer Prize winning book is book 2 in a trilogy. My husband says they are all incredible!"

- "I was totally engrossed in my husband's book called The Killer Angels. I wanted to see if this was some kind of kinky porn book, but alas it was not! This is a part of a Civil War trilogy that deals with Gettysburg. I really enjoyed it because it did not focus on the war side of things. I was able to relate to the lives of the people who actually fought in this battle. That's what this engaging book brought out. Maybe that's why Esquire recommended this book for men, but women like me loved it!"
- "If you are interested in history and war literature, you can do no better than The Killer Angels (Civil War Trilogy). This book has won a Pulitzer Prize and is required reading for students at West Point. An entertaining and gripping retelling of the Battle of Gettysburg. "
