    A powerful and evocative story of the Civil War's first battle and the men who fought it.

    Overall

    I am impressed with Bernard Cornwell's Civil War Novel. He has created a wonderful set of characters: lost seminary student Nate, eccentric Thaddeus Bird, war-torn, confused Adam and many other compelling people. Even though I knew the end of the story -- big spoiler: the North wins! -- I was still listening intently to find out the fate of these characters that Cornwell had made so real for me.
    Tom Parker reads the story with great tones, emphasis and emotion. The excitement, sorrow or glory of the scenes are personified by Parker's reading.
    The battle scenes are very detailed, vivid, the text teeming with realism. You can feel the texture of the cannons and hear the sounds of the rifles with Cornwell's words.
    From what I've read, Cornwell is very accurate in his chronology and descriptions of the events. There is a lot to be learned from the book while it is still enjoyable listening. I would recommend this novel to anyone who enjoys a good read (or listen!).
