SUMMARY The Killer AngelsThe Killer Angels

DOWNLOAD ß The Killer Angels Incisive portraits of Lee Longstreet Meade and other Civil War leaders are interwoven with rich. This is a different kind of army If you look at history you ll see men fight for pay or women or some other kind of loot They fight for land or because a king makes them or just because they like killing But we re here for something new I don t this hasn t happened much in the history of the world We re an army going out to set other men free Colonel Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain The position of all the troops on July 3rd 1863 The last day of battle You can see the famous fishhook deployment of the Union troops in blueI hadn t really thought about how unusual it is in the history of the world for men to be fighting for the freedom of others It was one of many times while reading this book that Michael Shaara crystallized some thoughts for me I love those moments when I read something and I know without a shadow of a doubt that another tumbler has clicked into place With every click I have come one step closer to understanding everything a mad thought that doesn t last long So the North was preserving the Union and freeing the slaves but what exactly where the boys in butternut fighting for They kept on insistin they wasn t fightin for no slaves they were fightin for their rats It finally dawned on me that what the feller meant was their rights only the way they talk it came out rats Then after that I asked this fella what rights he had that we were offendin and he said well he didn t know but he must have some rights he didn t know nothin about Now aint that something 33% of Southerners owned slaves Mississippi and South Carolina had much higher percentages at 49% and 46% So why did all those Southern boys rich and poor fight for the rats to keep slaves Most Southern Americans as do most Americans today had an expectation that they would be rich someday the eternal optimists Those poor white sharecropper farmers aspired to be slave owners It is the same reason why I hear people who live below the poverty line saying they didn t believe it was rat that the government was taxing the one percenters than the rest of us It doesn t make sense but then theymightjust win the lotterysomeday General Robert E Lee on Traveller Lee said Well we have left nothing undone It is all in the hands of God Longstreet thought it isn t God that is sending those men up that hill But he said nothing Lee rode awayThis book is centered around the three days of the battle of Gettysburg in Pennsylvania Robert E Lee overall commander of the Confederate army and GOD to many is trying to make a final thrust North to force the Union to seek terms His men loved him unconditionally The secret of General Lee is that men love him and follow him with faith in him That s one secret The next secret is that General Lee makes a decision and he moves with guts and he s been up against a lot of sickly generals who don t know how to make decisions although some of them have guts but whose men don t love them He is a different man than he was at the start of the war Some would say he is a brilliant tactician but if you walk the grounds of the battle of Gettysburg which I have not had that opportunity physically you will discover that Lee gave his generals an impossible task The battle smells of desperation Shaara makes the case that Lee was already suffering from the heart condition that would eventually kill him But it was not the pain that troubled him it was a sick gray emptiness he knew too well that sense of a hole clear through him like the blasted vacancy in the air behind a shell burst an enormous emptiness General James Longstreet loyal despite his fervent disagreements with Lee on tacticsLee was feeling weak and mortal at Gettysburg He wanted the war ended now It certainly clouded his judgement He was a man of faith and honor In Pennsylvania he put too much faith in God finding his cause righteous and he depending too heavily on the honor of his troops to make it to that grove of trees at the top of the hill He had a brilliant commander in Lieutenant General James Longstreet Longstreet argued to slide around the enemy and to fight another day If truth be known he disagreed with this whole thrusting North business He wanted to build trenches and fight a defensive war You don t win glorious honorable battles fighting a defensive war and Lee was addicted to winning battles There is a whiff of Shakespearean tragedy around Longstreet It was Longstreet s curse to see the thing clearly He was a brilliant man who was slow in speech and slow to move and silent faced as stone He had not the power to convince He was a strong commanding figure until he got around Lee Longstreet felt an extraordinary confusion He had a moment without confidence windblown and blasted vacant as an exploded shell There was a grandness in Lee that shadowed him silenced him He was an eccentric as well He was living in his mind than in his body Longstreet touched his cap came heavily down from the horse He was taller than Lee head like a boulder full bearded long haired always a bit sloppy gloomy shocked his staff by going into battle once wearing carpet slippers Lee counted on him but unfortunately he would have traded Longstreet for Stonewall Jackson every day of the week and twice on Sunday General John Buford died a few months after Gettysburg from Typhoid Fever He was a huge loss to the Union sideShaara also takes us into the minds of Union men like General John Buford who arrived at Gettysburg and realized the importance of deploying troops on the high ground against a superior Confederate force He knew he had to hold out until reinforcements arrived He d done this before He had thrown away the book of cavalry doctrine and they loved him for it At Thoroughfare Gap he had held against Longstreet 3000 men against 25000 for six hours sending off appeal after appeal for help which never came What impressed me about Buford was his ability to think out of the box and adapt to any situation Unfortunately for the Union he didn t have long to live or his name may have been further immortalized in Civil War history books General John Bell HoodThere was also Colonel Joshua Chamberlain who commanded the 20th Maine He was a school teacher by trade a professor at Bowdoin before the war broke out He and the Maine troops were positioned at the far left of the Federal line He was on Little Round Top facing the seasoned veteran General John B Hood Hood was a Longstreet man and firmly believed in the concept of a defensive war Despite their objections to Lee s tactics Hood and Longstreet did everything they could to obtain the objectives The 20th Maine s bayonet chargeChamberlain s men fired until they ran out of bullets and then Chamberlain in an act of desperation yelled Let s fix bayonets Chamberlain and his remaining men charged down the hill in the face of enemy fire and because of the ferocity of their attack Hood s men turned and retreated There are descriptions of battles so elegantly told that the horror is somewhat mitigated by the elouence of Shaara s writing Bravery is not just for Custeresue men like General Winfield Scott Hancock who inspired such loyalty from his acuaintances even those dressed in gray such as his best friend General Lewis Armistead Shaara describes the true crisis of consciousness these officers were facing Most of them had fought together in the Mexican American war went to West Point together drank together and had been united as one before this war where politics forced them to choose sides against the friends they had once fought with They re never uite the enemy those boys in blue I know Lee said I used to command those boys Longstreet said Difficult thing to fight men you used to command Lee said nothing By the end of this book I felt I knew all these men as intimately as I know friends I ve known for decades It is as if Shaara raised them from the dead one by one They are talking skeletons with nothing but truth rattling through their teeth Their souls are showing through their pale gray ribcages enscrolled with their most intimate thoughts They hid nothing from Shaara not their fears or their desires The war

DOWNLOAD ß The Killer Angels Historical detail to provide a fictional recreation of the bloody battle at Gettysburg in a new. Visceral That s the best word I can use to describe The Killer Angels both in the sense of instinctive or elemental emotions and in the sense of internal organs and guts Because both are relevant when you re talking about a book that captures what I imagine the experience of war to be like in a way that very few other books I ve ever read hasThe big caveat there of course is the I imagine part I ve never been a soldier have never fired anything other than a BB gun though in my callous youth I did bring to a premature conclusion the life of than one recalcitrant soda can and have absolutely no idea what it s like to kill another human or have another human try to kill me Jebus willing I never will So it s possible that war is nothing like this But Shaara s lean but descriptive prose and shifting POVs offer a perspective that feels so authentic that I found myself occasionally forgetting that this is a novel rather than a stitching together of first hand narratives one suspects Mr Shaara did his homework There s a reason this book is a classic of its genre and it s simultaneously an enlightening and painful readThe American Civil War is if not uniue in the history of warfare certainly a particularly unusual conflict especially when you consider the officers leading the troops on both sides of the fight Many had served together previously in the United States army and for a not inconsiderable period of time which meant that you had colleagues and in some cases good friends whose job it was to go out and try to kill each other in the name of the geography into which they happened to have been born putting aside their own personal feelings about the reasons for the war Side note I have a few colleagues I d be totally fine pointing the business end of my bayonet at but it s unlikely that I would actually be able to eviscerate them if it came to that though I d happily pour salt in their coffeeShaara is not concerned with trying to explain the reasons for the Civil War nor in making a case for whether those reasons were good ones or not his goal is to capture the experience of the fight He does so masterfully I felt completely immersed in the very troubling experience of preparing to fight from the oddly relaxed downtime between battles to the gut liuidating moments before the charge This is one of those books that will sit with me for a while and one that reminds me that even when justified and I have a much higher threshold for justification than most rulerscountries over the course of human history war is an awful horrific terrible thing
