This best-selling author is highly praised by both critics and fans for his action-packed historical novels. Casts of colorful characters spring to life in battle scenes vivid with authentic military detail.
When William Faulconer rescues Nate Starbuck, his son’s friend, from the clutches of a Yankee-hating mob in Virginia, he finds a grateful and willing recruit for Faulconer’s Legion. But Nate’s decision to fight against his native North is only one of the human dilemmas facing the Legion. The Legion commander’s son is against the war, and his daughter’s fiancé is plotting for control of the family fortune. As a motley gathering of men prepares to engage the enemy at Bull Run, they have high hopes of ending the war before it starts. No one can foresee the changes in store for themselves and for their country.
Nate Starbuck and his compatriots leap from the book in full battle regalia with Ed Sala’s narrative magic. Action scenes are all the more exciting because listeners identify with the well-drawn characters and understand the circumstances that lead them to this historical moment.

Great story, but weak performance.
- Cisco Rivera
This one ranks at or near the top of the audible's I have listened to.
I highly recommend the entire series of Nathaniel Starbuck chronicles. Very interesting history interwoven with a great personal story of triumph and tragedy. The story really pulls you into the timeline of the Civil War.
I like the inflection of his voice, he is very enjoyable to listen too. I like the slight accent and the different tones of the voice for different characters.
I suppose Nathaniel Starbuck himself should be the obvious standout but I also enjoyed his leading officers, namely his Colonel.
This is a great "read" and I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking not only a great story of personal struggle but also the history of the Civil War and different battles.
