An alternative history

What if.......American civil war technology met medieval aliens? This book is a fantastic war story but also does not ignore the logistics and human side of conflict which to my mind makes it all the stronger. Add in the technological developments that were available at the time (mid 1860s) and exploit them fully and you get an amazing story. Read the whole series - they're brilliant!
