"Fraught with tension, drama, and tantalizing hints of future romance, this vividly rendered family saga will hook fans of meaty historical fiction." (Booklist)

Disappointed in 1st book
As the first book in a large series, 'Manassas' really disappointed. While some of the character development was interesting and necessary (if predictable), the description of the battle and the dialogue between the men fighting it smacked of a B- John Wayne movie. I will give the 2nd book a try but am not optimistic. For better character development, more historical accuracy and more intense battle scenes, I would recommned the Starbuck series by Bernard Cornwell.

good background fiction...not much civil war
This is an enjoyable story - but as the first in a series it's focus has to be to build the foundation for a broad array of characters. As a result there is actually very little devoted to Manassas itself. I will purchase the next in the series, however, as I think ther series has potential to develop further in the later books.
