Author Jeff M. Shaara rounds out the Civil War Trilogy started by his late father Michael Shaara, whose book The Killer Angels described the Battle of Gettysburg. While Gods and Generals covered action prior to Gettysburg, The Last Full Measure picks up with Confederate General Robert E. Lee's retreat from Pennsylvania and continues through the end of the war. The younger Shaara focuses on the characters of Lee and Union commander Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain, both of whom play prominent roles in the earlier books. He also introduces a new one: Ulysses S. Grant, the Union general who would finally defeat the South--something no soldier before him could manage. The Last Full Measure is often exciting and poignant, and fans of The Killer Angels and Gods and Generals won't be disappointed. A nicely boxed edition of this classic historical fiction. --John Miller
“Brilliant does not even begin to describe the Shaara gift.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
“Shaara’s beautifully sensitive novel delves deeply in the empathetic realm of psycho-history, where enemies do not exist—just mortal men forced to make crucial decisions and survive on the same battlefield.”—San Francisco Chronicle, on Gods and Generals
“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.”—Ken Burns, on The Killer Angels
“The Last Full Measure is more than another historical novel. It is rooted in history, but its strength is the element of humanity flowing through its characters. . . . The book is compelling, easy to read, well researched and written, and thought-provoking. . . . In short, it is everything that a reader could ask for.”—Chicago Tribune

The research which went into the Trilogy is more than masterful. I always like to read the bibliographies of any scholarly work--if the sources are weak, the research is weak. The Bibliography supporting THE CIVIL WAR TRILOGY is massive and sound. Trustworthy. More than that, the prose flows: the characters come alive: Lincoln, Grant, Lee, Sherman, Davis, Chamberlain and so many, many more are so fleshed out in this narrative. No longer mere names in history texts, these men and women are revealed to the reader. We know them. They may not know us, but we know them. We would recognize them on the street. Amazing. If you like history, read this book. You'll like it.
