Jeff Shaara: Author Jeff Shaara follows in the footsteps of his famous father, the late Pulitzer Prize-winning author Michael Shaara (1974's The Killer Angels), with his own Civil War-era novel. In Gods and Generals, the younger Shaara (who served as a consultant for Gettysburg, the film based on Angels), traces the lives of the war's military leaders and brave soldiers in the years leading up to the action in his father's novel.
