Publisher Description

To victory—or death!

When Union Colonel Andrew Keane led his blue-coated soldiers aboard the transport ship, he could not have foreseen that their next port of call would be neither in the North nor the South, but in an alternate world where no human was free.

Swept through a space-time warp, Keane's regiment is shipwrecked in an alien land, a land where all that stood between them and destruction was the power of rifles over swords, spears, and crossbows. Thrown into this serfdom ruled by nobles and the Church, Keane and his men bring with them the radical ideas of freedom, equality, and democracy—and technology that is centuries ahead of the world they must now call home. Yet all their knowledge and training might not save them from the true rulers there—creatures for whom humans are mere cattle, bred for sacrifice.

Quotes

  • “Some of the best adventure writing in years!”

    - Science Fiction Chronicle
  • “A rousing tale with plenty of action. The battle scenes are exciting without glorifying war. The characters suffer real losses, and we feel their anguish. If you are a Civil War buff or like military SF this is a book not to be missed.”

    " I have read every book of the Lost Battalion series and loved every minute. So often the books that become series have a thin story stretched to a breaking point over the span of numerous books. Not so here. Forstchen has a big story in a complex world that needs the books he uses to tell it. I never got tired of it. Forstchen brings such civil war knowledge to his piece that it is often a history of the weapons of war in a novel form. Still, his strength is in the power of his character creation. So many memorable and living people inhabit his books. There are moments in these series that will stay with me as long as I live. Well worth checking out. "

    " Loved this series! For any lover of fantasy and history this is the ultimate book. This book gives you a civil war regiment based on the legendary 20th Maine, on an alien world populated by medieval Russians, ancient Egiptians, and an alien race which cultivates humans for food. "

    " The 35th Maine Regiment of the Army of the Potomac, after being withdrawn from the siege of Petersburg, finds itself relocated to a planet inhabited by 11th century Russians and human-feasting aliens. A cross between Pournelle's Janissaries and Anderson's Destroyermen series. "

    " I really like this book and the whole "Lost Regiment" series by Forstchen. The premise is solid and actually pretty scary. I am very critical of the believability of sci-fi and this novel holds together very well. "
