The Killer Angels is told by an omniscient third-person narrator. In general chapters focus on the point of view of one character, but there are exceptions.
The Killer Angels is written in the past tense.
The Killer Angels is an allusion to the title of a speech written by character and Union officer Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain. He writes the speech after telling his father about a line from Shakespeare's Hamlet, Prince of Denmark (1599–1601): "in action [man is] how like an angel!" His father replies that if men are angels, they are "murderin' angels." The title suggests humankind's capacity for both good and evil.
