The Civil War comes alive in all its passion and fury–only now the Brits are fighting . . . alongside the Confederacy

Outraged when the U.S. Navy seizes three Confederates aboard an English sailing ship, Britain retaliates by entering the fray in support of the Rebels–and suddenly it’s a whole new war.

Once again, cotton is king as the North’s blockade crumbles before the might of the Royal Navy. While Lincoln confronts the monumental challenge of vanquishing mighty Britannia, the Redcoats revive their 1812 penchant for burning down American cities, and Union troops see Canada as ripe for the picking. From the Mississippi bayou to the Pennsylvania farmlands to the woods of Maine, the great armies of Generals Grant and Lee face off in the nation’s deadliest conflict. And to the victor goes history.

User Review  - stevetempo - LibraryThing

A solid alternate history novel! The book has a nice moving plot, with some interesting insight into the war and era. What I like most about Conroy is that major historical figures also play major roles in his novels. Recommend to any alternate history or Civil War buff. Read full review
