"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."'James M. McPherson In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation's history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara's Pulitzer Prize'winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable'the dramatic story of the battleground for America's destiny. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory

Michael Shaara published many short stories during the course of his early career as an author before getting his first novel published--The Broken Place. He wrote science fiction stories for the pulp magazines with names like Galaxy and Fantastic Universe, but also domestic dramas and humorous stories for magazines such as Cosmopolitan and Redbook, McCall's and The Saturday Evening Post, and even one for Playboy. A couple of stories were published in a 1982 collection called "Soldier Boy," and a few more remained unpublished until released as electronic editions in 2014. This is the first time, anywhere, that all the short stories of this Pulitzer Prize-winning author (for "The Killer Angels") have been collected in one place--published and unpublished, science fiction and everything else.

Travis, in reaching Diomed III before any others, found himself waging a one-man fight against more than this; he was bucking the strangest way of life you have ever heard of!
