"He rode into the dark of the woods and dismounted."

The Killer Angels, by Michael Shaara.

I just finished it. Starting the book and finishing it were almost the same event. It is that good.

I have the movie Gettysburg that was based upon this book, and follows it closely, but I just never got around to buying the book to read. No wonder it won The Pulitzer Prize. Having watched the movie first helped me to put a face to the characters in my mind's eye.

Man! What a great read! I agree with the quote on the dust jacket from General H. Norman Schwarzkopf: "The best and most realistic historical novel about war I have ever read."
