Bloody Ground: Nathaniel Starbuck Chronicles, Book IV

It is only weeks after the Second Manassas in September 1862, and Robert E. Lee takes the war north, where he will be met by "Little Mac", General George McClellan, whose northern army far outnumbers and outguns the invading Confederates.

Publisher's Summary

It is only weeks after the Second Manassas in September 1862, and Robert E. Lee takes the war north, where he will be met by "Little Mac", General George McClellan, whose northern army far outnumbers and outguns the invading Confederates. In Richmond, Virginia, Starbuck is given command of a punishment battalion, a motley collection of cowards, thieves, deserters, and murderers, officered by men who do not welcome Starbuck's arrival. Setting off to join Lee's army, Starbuck's men reach Harper's Ferry in time to take part in Stonewall Jackson's capture of the Union garrison. From there, it is on to the legendary horror of Sharpsburg beside the Antietam Creek, forever to be remembered as the bloodiest single day of the war. There, in the cornfield, Starbuck and his despised men will have their courage and commitment tested as never before.

    "Great series on the beginning of the Civil War."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As a Northerner I have always approached the Civil War from a Northern perspective. This book had me rooting for the rebels.


    Any additional comments?

    The greatest disappointment is that after four novels I want a fifth!

    "A great read"
    If you could sum up Bloody Ground in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, compelling, intriguing


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really enjoyed how the author wrapped a fictional character around historical events and drew you into the characters lives. A great way to learn about historical events also.


    Have you listened to any of Grover Gardner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Am not sure, but I really enjoy the different inflections for different characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    See Starbucks personal drama's amid one of the countries biggest drama's.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this read immensely and have listened to the entire Nathanial Starbuck chronicles and really enjoyed them all. Sad I got to the last one and had to leave them.

    "A fitting end?"

    Mr Cornwell is keeping us guessing about whether there will be any more Starbuck books. Basically the Sharpe series kind of swallowed poor Starbuck hole. I hope we will see more but if not this was a fitting end for his US Civil War hero. A classic battle and a book filled with the intrigue of feuding characters and the utter terror and stupidity that epitomised the warfare of the period. An excellent read and the usual excellent performance from master Gardner, the man with a voice like liquid granite.
