About the Author
Jeff Shaara is the New York Times-bestselling author of Gods and Generals and The Last Full Measure - two novels that complete the Civil War trilogy begun by his father, Michael Shaara, with the Pulitzer Prize-winning book The Killer Angels. His World War II series includes The Final Storm, No Less Than Victory, The Steel Wave, and The Rising Tide.
Shaara has also written To the Last Man, The Glorious Cause, Rise to Rebellion, and Gone for Soldiers. In 2012, Shaara returned to the Civil War with A Blaze of Glory, followed by A Chain of Thunder, The Smoke at Dawn, and The Fateful Lightning - all New York Times bestsellers.
In his highly anticipated new book, The Frozen Hours, Shaara brings readers to the front lines of the Korean War and the Battle of Chosin Reservoir. Through researching memoirs, collections of letters, and diaries Shaara takes on the voices of the generals, the foot soldiers, and even of the Chinese commander, bringing to life the events of the battle through the eyes of the characters.
Each of his carefully researched books bring to the page a new way to experience military fiction driven by engrossing historical characters. In his engaging lectures, Shaara details the attention and research it takes to write his critically acclaimed works.
A descendant of Italian immigrants, Shaara was born in 1952 in New Brunswick, New Jersey, grew up in Tallahassee, Florida, and graduated from Florida State University with a degree in criminology. He lives in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
