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. Download and start listening now!

    " This ia a hard books to read, but how hard the punches come demonstrate what a great book it is "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Benjamin Thomas | 9/13/2013

    " Too bad this is the last one of the series. Mr Cornwell has stated that he would like to return to the Starbuck Chronicles but unfortunately, that's just not his marketplace these days. I'm afraid it won't ever happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carolyn | 9/11/2013

    " Written to give a feel of the horrific terror of the battle while keeping you interested in the whole family and real life cast of characters. In this 150th anniversary year, would be nice to see a new book from this author on the civil war and the further adventures of Starbuck and friends. "
