WINNER OF THE 1975 PULITZER PRIZE FOR FICTION.
It took Shaara seven years to write this novel and submission to 16 publishers before it was accepted. The book received little attention at first, perhaps due to the Viet Nam backlash against any mention of war. Even after winning the Pulitzer little was made of the book until the movie was made using Killer Angels as its basis. Now the book is recognized as one of few highly acclaimed Civil War novels.
Not a rare book, but expensive in the first printing. Many copies over $1500 on the internet.
