In this extraordinary memoir, Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain of the Fifth Corps records the dramatic final acts of the Civil War: Sheridan's rise, Warren's fall, and the slow, inexorable stalking of Lee's forces across the battle-scarred countryside. With rare eloquence, Chamberlain describes the troop movements, the clash and chaos of battle, and the soul of a Union army under the confident new command of U.S. Grant. Here is an unmatched portrait of war's end --from the moment a Confederate staff officer crossed the lines bearing a white flag to the cold gray morning at Appomattox that sealed the South's defeat and sent two armies home to a nation changed forever"--P.

The novel is the final volume in a trilogy, begun by the author's father with The Killer Angels. In the Pulitzer prize-winning classic The Killer Angels, Michael Shaara created the finest Civil War novel of our time, an enduring bestseller that has sold more than two million copies. In the bestselling Gods and Generals, Shaara's son, Jeff, brilliantly sustained his father's vision, telling the epic story of the events culminating in the Battle of Gettysburg. Now, Jeff Shaara brings this legendary father-son trilogy to its stunning conclusion in a novel that brings to life the final two years of the Civil War. As The Last Full Measure opens, Gettysburg is past and the war advances to its third brutal year. On the Union side, the gulf between the politicians in Washington and the generals in the field yawns ever wider. Never has the cumbersome Union Army so desperately needed a decisive, hard-nosed leader. It is at this critical moment that Lincoln places Ulysses S. Grant in command, and turns the tide of war. For Robert E. Lee, Gettysburg was an unspeakable disaster, compounded by the shattering loss of the fiery Stonewall Jackson two months before. Lee knows better than anyone that the South cannot survive a war of attrition. But with the total devotion of his generals; Longstreet, Hill, Stuart, and his unswerving faith in God, Lee is determined to fight to the bitter end. Here too is Joshua Chamberlain, the college professor who emerged as the Union hero of Gettysburg, and who will rise to become one of the greatest figures of the Civil War. Battle by staggering battle, Shaara dramatizes the escalating confrontation between Lee and Grant, complicated, heroic, deeply troubled men. From the costly Battle of the Wilderness to the agonizing siege 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. Full of human passion and the spellbinding truth of history, The Last Full Measure is the fitting capstone to a magnificent literary trilogy+-+7649590985195515ocn052362689visu20030.18Gods and generalsHistoryFictionDramaFilm and video adaptationsFilm adaptationsGods and Generals follows the rise and fall of legendary war hero "Stonewall Jackson".

In his gripping memoir, first published in 1915, General Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain presents a highly literate, clear-eyed description of the momentous events that occurred during the last weeks of the American Civil War. He offers an assessment of the military situation in the eastern theater during these final, hard-fought days; a description of the surrender by the Army of Northern Virginia at an Appomattox farm; and the multitude of emotions felt by soldiers after the disbandment of the Union army following its last review. Chamberlain also recounts the logistical challenges facing his Fifth Corps as it moved toward Appomattox ("The roads [have been] reduced to a hopeless pudding."). He relates the decision making at the top of the chain of command ("General Grant had experienced a change of mind-a complete and decided one"). He conveys the stark terror and disastrous confusion of battle ("General Sheridan was by my side in a moment, very angry. 'You are firing into my cavalry!, he exclaims."). After witnessing the Army of Northern Virginia's formal surrender, Chamberlain writes with compassion about the fate awaiting the Confederate troops now that the war is over ("Then, their ranks broken, the bonds that bound them fused away by forces stronger than fire, they are free at last to go where they will; to find their homes, now most likely stricken, despoiled by war.") Well-deserving of its place as a key document in American military history, and crafted with true literary skill, The Passing of the Armies is a must read for Civil War buffs and anyone interested in the history of warfare+-+754817853512575ocn045731619file19960.23Chamberlain, Joshua LawrenceThrough blood & fire selected Civil War papers of Major General Joshua ChamberlainHistoryBiographyPersonal narratives+-+K50262663511495ocn044954557file19990.28Longacre, Edward GJoshua Chamberlain the soldier and the manHistoryBiography"Edward G.

From Manassas to Appomatox, Chamberlain and Alexander fought in nearly every major eastern battle of the Civil War. Tested by the savagery of combat, Chamberlain mastered the soldier's art and rose to become one of the best of the Union's frontline infantry commanders. Alexander, artillerist and engineer, indispensable aide to Lee and Longstreet, built a reputation as one of the most brilliant officers of the Confederacy. - Jacket flap+-+84046603364592ocn154670494book19920.06Kennedy, Robert FrancisJoshua Chamberlain and the American Civil WarHistoryJuvenile worksBiographyPresents the life of the Civil War general from Maine whose skill as a commander in twenty-four battles, despite being wounded six times, made him a symbol for bravery and perseverance for the Union side+-+86225687963175ocn080199211visu20030.19GettysburgHistoryFictionDramaFilm adaptationsGettysburg: Civil War drama depicting the events and personal struggles of the Union and Confederate soldiers at the Battle of Gettysburg3116ocn847010104file19990.53Smith, Diane MonroeFanny & Joshua the enigmatic lives of Frances Caroline Adams & Joshua Lawrence ChamberlainBiographyThe intimate history of Civil War hero Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain and his wife, Frances Caroline Adams2934ocn039193761rcrd19980.13Shaara, JeffThe last full measureHistoryFictionAs the American Civil War moves into its third year, Lincoln puts Ulysses S.

The roots of a tradition of undying valor and constancy were founded here, and they have been a vibrant heritage for subsequent generations.
