Publisher's Summary

Distinguishing himself at the Battle of Cedar Mountain, Confederate Captain Nate Starbuck's career is jeopardized through the suspicion and hostility of his brigade commander, the grandiose General Washington Faulconer. Their simmering enmity flares to life at Dead Mary's Ford, where Nate Starbuck has to fight the enemy as well as his own commanding officer.

The outcome of that vicious fight drastically changes both men's fortunes, and propels Starbuck into the ghastly bloodletting at the Second Battle of Manassas, and into a severe test of his ability to lead men who are on the very edge of disaster. As the endless war rages on, neither Yankees nor rebels can guess how the tide may turn. Only time, courage, and belief in the cause will tell.

I’m kind of a amateur historian

I am a amateur historian who has read loads on the Civil War. Although this book is historical fiction, the events are pretty darn accurate to my knowledge. The battles and surrounding events are the accurate if you accept the biographies and accounts by those who participated in both Blue and Gray. Thanks

Great story with mediocre fictional characters

The battle and history is fantastic. The characters are just ok. I would recommend it for the fantastic war story telling, and the masterful bringing to life of the real characters.

What the heck?

I’ve listened to almost every Bernard Cornwell books’.

Need I say more?

I even watched him interviewed etc.

Don’t think for an instant he’s the only author I like.

Great mind and vocabulary.

Kudos!

Lots of battle descriptions

This 3rd book in the Starbuck series was one battle after the other. Interesting history, but not enough human interest to keep my interest. The other books in the series were wonderful. It did not enjoy this one though.

The best Civil War stories I've experienced

This is one of the best Civil War stories that ever experienced; I would strongly recommend it to anyone that has an interest in the Civil War and you will get to see the war through the eyes of a soldier. I hope Bernard Cornwell continues on to Gettysburg and eventually to Appomattox Courthouse.
