Michael Shaara reinvented the war novel with his Pulitzer Prize–winning masterpiece of Gettysburg, The Killer Angels. Jeff Shaara continued his father’s legacy with a series of centuries-spanning New York Times bestsellers. Together at last in eBook form, this volume assembles three Civil War novels from America’s first family of military fiction: Gods and Generals, The Killer Angels, and The Last Full Measure. Gods and Generals traces the lives, passions, and careers of the great military leaders—Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson, Winfield Scott Hancock, Joshua Chamberlain—from the gathering clouds of war. The Killer Angels re-creates the fight for America’s destiny in the Battle of Gettysburg, the four most bloody and courageous days of our nation’s history. And The Last Full Measure brings to life the final two years of the Civil War, chasing the escalating conflict between Robert E. Lee and Ulysses S. Grant—complicated, heroic, and deeply troubled men—through to its riveting conclusion at Appomattox. Contains a preview Jeff Shaara’s new novel of the Civil War, A Blaze of Glory. Praise for Michael Shaara and Jeff Shaara’s Civil War trilogy “Brilliant does not even begin to describe the Shaara gift.”—The Atlanta Journal-Constitution “Shaara’s beautifully sensitive novel delves deeply in the empathetic realm of psycho-history, where enemies do not exist—just mortal men forced to make crucial decisions and survive on the same battlefield.”—San Francisco Chronicle, on Gods and Generals “Remarkable . . . a book that changed my life . . . I had never visited Gettysburg, knew almost nothing about that battle before I read the book, but here it all came alive.”—Ken Burns, on The Killer Angels “The Last Full Measure is more than another historical novel. It is rooted in history, but its strength is the element of humanity flowing through its characters. . . . The book is compelling, easy to read, well researched and written, and thought-provoking. . . . In short, it is everything that a reader could ask for.”—Chicago Tribune

New York Times bestselling author John Scalzi takes readers on an epic romp of galactic conquest and exploration in the Old Man’s War series. This box set includes: Old Man's War, The Ghost Brigades, and The Last Colony Earth itself is a backwater. The bulk of humanity's resources are in the hands of the Colonial Defense Force, which shields the home planet from too much knowledge of the situation. What's known to everybody is that when you reach retirement age, you can join the CDF. They don't want young people; they want people who carry the knowledge and skills of decades of living. Old Man’s War John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army, with only the vaguest idea what to expect. Because the actual fight is far more difficult than he can imagine—and what he will become is far stranger. The Ghost Brigades At first, Jared is a perfect soldier, but as another man's memories slowly surface, Jared begins to intuit the reasons for their betrayal. Time is running out: The alliance is preparing its offensive, and some of them plan worse things than humanity's mere military defeat. The Last Colony Retired from his fighting days, John Perry and his wife, Jane, are pulled back into the political arena, and into the thick of interstellar politics, betrayal, and war.

"The Civil War defined us as what we are and it opened us to being what we became, good and bad things.... It was the crossroads of our being, and it was a hell of a crossroads: the suffering, the enormous tragedy of the whole thing."- Shelby Foote, from The Civil War When the illustrated edition of The Civil War was first published, The New York Time hailed it as "a treasure for the eye and mind." Now Geoffrey Ward's magisterial work of history is available in a text-only edition that interweaves the author's narrative with the voices of the men and women who lived through the cataclysmic trial of our nationhood: not just Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, and Robert E. Lee, but genteel Southern ladies and escaped slaves, cavalry officers and common foot soldiers who fought in Yankee blue and Rebel gray. The Civil War also includes essays by our most distinguished historians of the era: Don E. Fehrenbacher, on the war's origins; Barbara J. Fields, on the freeing of the slaves; Shelby Foote, on the war's soldiers and commanders; James M. McPherson, on the political dimensions of the struggle; and C. Vann Woodward, assessing the America that emerged from the war's ashes.

Spies, thieves, codebreakers & counterfeiters: All three Secrets & Spies books in one set! TO STEAL A HEART A master spy and a beautiful thief find love and intrigue in each other’s arms. Forced to do the bidding of a corrupt government minister, tightrope-walking thief Marianne de Bonnard agrees to plant incriminating evidence in the offices of France’s most notorious spymaster. But when her wickedly handsome target appears—with an outrageous proposition—Marianne’s torn between fear and an unwelcome spark of desire. Nicolas Valette has plans for his graceful trespasser. Her unique skills make her perfect for his next mission, but she refuses his offer for fear of disobeying her family’s tormenter. When their mutual enemy auctions off her virginity to the highest bidder, Nicolas leaps at the chance to buy her cooperation. Both want revenge, but perhaps their joint adventures will uncover something even more delicious . . . A RAVEN’S HEART When bookish codebreaker Heloise Hampden cracks the enemy’s most recent code, French agents are sent to silence her. But it’s the agent assigned to protect her who poses the greatest threat to her heart: William de l’Isle, Viscount Ravenwood. Raven’s imprisonment has made him wary of love, but his heart still pounds whenever he’s within ten paces of Heloise. He’ll do whatever it takes to keep her safe—even if that means taking her to Spain as an unwilling hostage. Protecting her from danger will be a challenge; protecting her from desire will be pure agony. A COUNTERFEIT HEART As Sabine de la Tour tosses piles of forged banknotes onto a bonfire in a Paris park, she bids a reluctant farewell to her double life as a notorious criminal. She must escape France—or face the guillotine. Her only hope of surviving in England is to strike a deal with the very spy she’s spent her career outrunning. Richard Hampden, Viscount Lovell, will risk anything to protect England, even make a pact with the greatest counterfeiter in Europe, Philippe Lacorte. But when a cheeky, gamine-faced beauty proves herself to be Lacorte, Richard is shocked—and more than a little aroused. This cunning minx offers an irresistible challenge. Richard will help her. But in return, he wants something even Sabine cannot fake.
