1 The Killer Angels

Author : Michael Shaara
Genre :  Historical  Books  Fiction & Literature  Action & Adventure 
Price :  $7.99
Release Date :  1975-06-12
Description :  <b>“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</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> 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.<br /><br />BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's <i>Blaze of Glory.</i>

Description :  Michael Shaara reinvented the war novel with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece of Gettysburg, <i>The Killer Angels</i>. Jeff Shaara continued his father’s legacy with a series of centuries-spanning <i>New York Times </i>bestsellers. Together at last in eBook form, this volume assembles three Civil War novels from America’s first family of military fiction: <i>Gods and Generals, The Killer Angels, </i>and <i>The Last Full Measure</i>.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <i>Gods and Generals</i> traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders—Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, Winfield Scott Hancock, Joshua Chamberlain—from the gathering clouds of war. <i>The Killer Angels</i> re-creates the fight for America’s destiny in the Battle of Gettysburg, the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history. And <i>The Last Full Measure</i> brings to life the final two years of the Civil War, chasing the escalating conflict between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant—complicated, heroic, and deeply troubled men—through to its riveting conclusion at Appomattox.<br /> &#xa0;<br /> <b>Contains a preview Jeff Shaara’s new novel of the Civil War, <i>A Blaze of Glory</i>.<br /></b><br /><b>Praise for Michael Shaara and Jeff Shaara’s Civil War trilogy</b><br /> &#xa0;<br /> “Brilliant does not even begin to describe the Shaara gift.”—<i>The Atlanta Journal-Constitution</i><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “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.”—<i>San Francisco Chronicle, </i>on <i>Gods and Generals</i><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “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 <i>The Killer Angels</i><br /> <i>&#xa0;</i><br /> “<i>The Last Full Measure</i> 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.”—<i>Chicago Tribune</i>

Description :  Beauclaire was given his first ship at Sirius. He was called up before the Commandant in the slow heat of the afternoon, and stood shuffling with awkward delight upon the shaggy carpet. He was twenty-five years old, and two months out of the Academy. It was a wonderful day. The Commandant told Beauclaire to sit down, and sat looking at him for a long while. The Commandant was an old man with a face of many lines. He was old, was hot, was tired. He was also very irritated. He had reached that point of oldness when talking to a young man is an irritation because they are so bright and certain and don't know anything and there is nothing you can do about it.

4 The Broken Place

Author : Michael Shaara
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $5.99
Release Date :  2014-12-17
Description :  Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times bestselling author Michael Shaara’s first novel, The Broken Place, is the triumphant story of Tom McClain—Korean War hero, wounded veteran, professional boxer, college student, and sufferer from post-traumatic stress disorder. Upon McClain's return to the U.S., he heads to his college campus in Vermont, to try to pick up the pieces of the life he'd left behind before he went into the army. But while he's glad to reunite with his old friend, fellow med-student, drinking companion and raconteur Charlie Ravenal, he's not sure he wants to stay in school. He's restless, and not even a date with blonde, petite Lise Hoffman—the prettiest girl on the campus who is infatuated with him—can shake him out of his funk. A trip to the Holy Land with his army buddy Tony Wilson ends in disaster in Afghanistan. McClain comes to the realization that he's a fighter...it's all he knows how to do. So he decides to do the only thing he's comfortable with, and climbs back into the ring. It's there that McClain at last feels at home. And his boxing career is on the rise—until the night he kills a man in the ring, a man he didn't know, a man he had no beef with. McClain will fight no more, but it will take the love of a good woman and his best friend to save him...from himself.<br /><br />With a brand new introduction by the author's son, New York Times bestselling author Jeff Shaara.

5 The Rebel in Autumn

Author : Michael Shaara
Genre :  Fiction & Literature  Books 
Price :  $5.99
Release Date :  2014-12-08
Description :  “The rebel in spring is a sometime thing, but beware the rebel in autumn…” states the epigraph to Michael Shaara’s great unpublished novel, The Rebel in Autumn. Shaara wrote Rebel immediately before The Killer Angels (for which he won the Pulitzer Prize), in the late 1960s while teaching creative writing at Florida State University. Loosely based on his years as a professor on the then-small Southern college campus, Rebel is perhaps Shaara’s most fully realized novel.<br /><br />The year is 1969. Unrest on college campuses is peaking, students tune in, drop out and protest everything from the Vietnam War to racism and police brutality while old guard conservatives push back. And at one small southern university, a story censored from the college literary magazine is the match that sets the tinder box ablaze. There’s a simple solution, argues history prof Max Rainer—just publish the damn story and move on. Rainer has more important things on his mind, like his weekend getaway planned with Rona Jackson, the cute sorority girl who sits in the first row. But university president Harry Locke feels that now is the time to draw his line in the sand. He’s read about what’s been going on up at Columbia, and he’ll be damned if anything like that will happen on his watch, no sir. Locke—an undistinguished administrator at the end of his career—has misread the mood of the students, where the seeds of unrest lie just below the surface of a genteel Southern campus.<br /><br />Rainer leads the faculty’s vocal opposition to the story’s censorship, students begin to skip class to protest, and Locke’s closest advisor tells him now is no time to rebel against forces beyond his control. But the battle lines are drawn and neither side can give in. When the administration building is taken over and the students begin a sit-in, that’s when the fires start. And that’s when the police are called in. Rainer tries to keep the peace. But with the agitation of a Vietnam vet-turned-hippie and a recently politicized black music student with a rifle, the stage is set for a deadly showdown.<br /><br />Written just before the fatal shootings of four students at Kent State in Ohio, and then forgotten in a drawer for nearly 45 years, The Rebel in Autumn is now published for the first time anywhere, ready to take its place as one of the great works of American fiction from a time when words mattered.<br /><br />With an introduction by the author's son, New York Times bestselling novelist Jeff Shaara.

Description :  When the radiogram came in it was 10:28 ship's time and old 29 was exactly 3. 4 light years away from Diomed III. Travis threw her wide open and hoped for the best. By 4:10 that same afternoon, minus three burned out generators and fronting a warped ion screen, old 29 touched the atmosphere and began homing down. It was a very tense moment. Somewhere down in that great blue disc below a Mapping Command ship sat in an open field, sending up the beam which was guiding them down. But it was not the Mapping Command that was important. The Mapping Command was always first.

Description :  The man in the purple robe was too old to walk or stand. He was wheeled upon a purple bench into the center of a marvelous room, where unhuman beings whom we shall call "They" had gathered and waited. Because he was such an old man, he commanded a great sum of respect, but he was nervous before Them and spoke with apology, and sometimes with irritation, because he could not understand what They were thinking and it worried him.
