User Review  - bdtrump - LibraryThing

While not quite the caliber of Cornwell's Warlord Trilogy, this first installment of his Civil War series is entertaining. Nate Starbuck has characteristics similar to much of Cornwell's heroes, although his fellow war fighters are a bit more morally ambiguous than normal. Read full review

An interesting novel. Appears to have been one of Cornwell's earlier ones but it was still good. There are three more in the series and I think I will read them at some point. I would like to see what happens to Nate Starbuck and his friend Adam. Read full review
