Publisher Description

In the Pulitzer prize–winning classic The Killer Angels, Michael Shaara created the finest Civil War novel of our time. The Last Full Measure tells the epic story of the events following the Battle of Gettysburg and brings to life the final two years of the Civil War. Jeff Shaara dramatizes the escalating confrontation between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant—complicated, heroic, and deeply troubled men. For Lee and his Confederate forces, Gettysburg has been an unspeakable disaster, but he is determined to fight to the bitter end; he faces Grant, the decisive, hard-nosed leader the Union army so desperately needs in order to turn the tide of the war. From the costly Battle of the Wilderness to the agonizing seize of Petersburg to Lee’s epoch-making surrender at Appomattox, Shaara portrays the riveting conclusion of the Civil War through the minds and hearts of the individuals who gave their last full measure.

BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from Jeff Shaara's Blaze of Glory.

The Last Full Measure

This book is an excellent continuation of Jeff Shaara's use of principal characters to tell the history of the events. It combines humanity with the horrors of the last two years of the Civil War.

Just finished “Last Full Measure” and found it equal to his father’s work on “Killer Angels”. I hope to revisit civil war sites, visited in the past, with renewed intimacy of the people involved.

Thank you for the experience

The Last Full Measure

Jeff Shaara's final book in this series is incredible..the last 2 years of the war is told in remarkable battle scenes. No other seires will ever compare to Jeff Shaara's civil war. From the start of the series to the end, I felt like I was apart of the battle's. Jeff and his father will go down in history as the best Civil war authors.
