Report on "The Killer Angels"

Report on "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara When an author writes a book he has a
message that he is trying to get across to the reader. This message is called a theme. In The

showed last 75 words of 830 total
to end the way it did. The Civil War tore families and friends apart, all
the way up to the highest military ranks. The Killer Angels was an exceptional book, and I
strongly recommend it to anyone who is interested in the thoughts and fears of both armies
during the Civil War. The Killer Angels was filled with action, suspense and drama, and it is
perhaps the most accurate account of the Battle of Gettysburg.
