The Last Full Measure is the story of the epic struggle between two of the greatest men in American history - Robert E Lee and Ulysees S Grant. Through 1864 and the early months of 1865, as the Confederacy lay slowly dying, it was only the genius of Lee that kept the last dim flickers of hope alive. Eventually even he could do no more, and at Appomattox Court House on April 9 1865, the dream of Southern independence was extinguished. Following the intertwined stories of three men - Grant, Lee and Joshua Chamberlain - Jeff Shaara creates a magnificent panorama of this huge struggle: the struggle to create a nation.

'Those men over there, those so-called soliders of the rebellion, they are not dying for a government in Richmond ... They are fighting for Lee. Lee is the rebellion' – Ulysees S Grant

Jeff Shaara is the New York Times bestselling author of The Steel Wave, The Rising Tide, To the Last Man, The Glorious Cause, Rise to Rebellion, and Gone for Soldiers, as well as Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure – two novels that complete the Civil War trilogy that began with his father's Pulitzer Prize-winning classic The Killer Angels.
