When Richmond landowner Washington Faulconer snatches young Nate Starbuck from the grip of a Yankee-hating mob, Nate is both grateful and awed by his idealistic rescuer. To repay his generosity, he enlists in the Faulconer legion to fight against his home, the North, and against his abolitionist father. When the regiment joins up, ready to march into the ferocious battle at Buff Run, the men are prepared to start a war . . . but they aren't ready for how they-and the nation-will be forever changed by the oaths they have sworn for their beloved South.

This is a terrific series. Not quite up to Sharpe but a close second. Nate Starbuck is the classic Cornwell fish out of water. A well to do Northerner who finds himself fighting with farmers and clerks to defend the South. As always with Cornwell, a great story, well told with with excellent attention to historical detail.

Set during the American Civil War, follows the confrontation of North against South.
Be prepared for battle scenes and gore. Historically accurate, Cornwell likes to tell it like it was.
