This prequel of The Killer Angels begins before the start of the Civil War; it goes all the way through the first part of the war and stops at the beginning of Gettysburg. It mainly follows four men, Robert E. Lee, Winfield Scott Hancock, Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson, and Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. The reader learns about their personal lives and the lives they led as soldiers. Jeff Shaara turns these men's years as soldiers into a beautifully told story that educates as well as entertains.

I enjoyed the book, but is for more advanced readers. Besides the fact that it has a hard reading level, it includes some gruesome details. I liked the book just as much as The Killer Angels and am looking forward to reading The Last Full Measure.
