Love and War is the dark part of the North and South Trilogy... the storyline is during the deepest parts of the War and therefore has the burden of telling that story.
I appreciate the use of the Horse as a metaphor for the mind numbing losses that took place during the conflict.. it is hard to imagine the wide scope of such an immense happening in our history... but to feel the pain of the loss of your closest companion and most valued and irreplaceable tool brings the loss to a level that can be felt even in such a small increment.
The story at this part shows well the struggle of Love ... love of family.. love of our ideals... right or wrong as they may be... love of friends.. and love of our ways... again... right or wrong.
We also see the destruction and the encroching upon our thought processes of
Evil.. how subtle a game can be played when good men do not stand.
No!!! This is a story that I needed to think about as it unfolds... the depths of the lessons that our history has to impart to us it too widespread to gulp. It needs to be savored and pondered over to actually learn anything.
If we cannot learn from our past......
Start with North and South and take the journey. It is worth the travel.
