September Giveaway: The Killer Angels


I've got a few giveaways lined up for the month of September. First up:


The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara--one of my all-time favorite historical books. And probably my favorite war-related story. I was already interested in the Civil War before reading it, but this one really highlights Joshua Chamberlain and sparked my interest in his Civil War career. I've mentioned this one on a couple of memes recently and a few of you have expressed interest in it. Well, here's your chance to snag your very own copy.

Synopsis:
In the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history, two armies fought for two conflicting dreams. One dreamed of freedom, the other of a way of life. Far more than rifles and bullets were carried into battle. There were memories. There were promises. There was love. And far more than men fell on those Pennsylvania fields. Bright futures, untested innocence, and pristine beauty were also the casualties of war. Michael Shaara’s Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece is unique, sweeping, unforgettable—the dramatic story of the battleground for America’s destiny. - (Random House, Inc.)

Entries will be accepted through midnight on Sunday, October 2, and a winner will be selected by random number generator on Monday. If you would like the opportunity to win Killer Angels, please comment below with your email address. The winner will have 48 hours to respond to an email to claim their prize. You do not have to be a follower to enter and international entries are welcome.

Hi Bev,

Thanks for the giveaway and especially for making it open internationally, that is a great gesture and is always appreciated.

If I were to win this giveaway, I would in return be gifting the book to my 86 year old father-in-law.

He has always had an interest in the Civil War and avidly devours any books that I can get hold of for him.

Fingers crossed.

My email address is

Hi Bev

Though I had entered for the giveaway, I am withdrawing from it after reading Yvonne's post. Even if I were to win the book, I'd feel guilty of having deprived an elder the pleasure of reading something he is very fond of.
