Summary

Third volume in the best-selling Starbuck Chronicles. The battle for control of Richmond, the Confederate capital, continues through the hot summer of 1862.

Captain Nate Starbuck, yankee fighting for the Southern cause, has to survive and win in the bitter struggle not only against the formidable Northern army but equally in opposition to his own superiors who would like nothing better than to see Nate Starbuck dead and dishonoured.

Starbuck's courage is tested to the limit in his desperate manoeuvres to retrieve his own and the Legion's honour in this the thrid narrative of Bernard Cornwell's sweeping epic of the American Civil War.

Critic reviews

"Admirably catches the chaotic and bloody nature of the action…. it's a state-of-the-art swashbuckler" ( Sunday Times)
"The best battle scenes of any writer I've ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive." (George R.R. Martin)

Wonderful addition to the Chronicles

Brilliantly told story, expanding in the Characters in surprising ways but entirely natural evolution of the tale. Battle scenes portrayed in a way that allows suspense and imagery that propels the story further. Wonderfully performed and found with each book Cullum has found his portrayal on the characters solidifying.

As usual the historical detail is greatly researched. A great story bavery north and south.
