Publisher's Summary

It is only weeks after the Second Manassas in September 1862, and Robert E. Lee takes the war north, where he will be met by "Little Mac", General George McClellan, whose northern army far outnumbers and outguns the invading Confederates. In Richmond, Virginia, Starbuck is given command of a punishment battalion, a motley collection of cowards, thieves, deserters, and murderers, officered by men who do not welcome Starbuck's arrival. Setting off to join Lee's army, Starbuck's men reach Harper's Ferry in time to take part in Stonewall Jackson's capture of the Union garrison. From there, it is on to the legendary horror of Sharpsburg beside the Antietam Creek, forever to be remembered as the bloodiest single day of the war. There, in the cornfield, Starbuck and his despised men will have their courage and commitment tested as never before.

Amazing series!

I enjoyed this series very much. Not only are the characters fascinating and entertaining but the series is very historically accurate. I'm extremely sad that Nate Starbucks story isn't told further in further books. I'm hoping that someday the author decides to finish Nate's story.

A fitting end?

Mr Cornwell is keeping us guessing about whether there will be any more Starbuck books. Basically the Sharpe series kind of swallowed poor Starbuck hole. I hope we will see more but if not this was a fitting end for his US Civil War hero. A classic battle and a book filled with the intrigue of feuding characters and the utter terror and stupidity that epitomised the warfare of the period. An excellent read and the usual excellent performance from master Gardner, the man with a voice like liquid granite.
