Publisher's Summary

The first book in Bernard Cornwell's best-selling series on the American Civil War.
It is summer 1861. The armies of North and South stand on the brink of America's civil war. Nathanial Starbuck, jilted by his girl and estranged from his family, arrives in the capital of the Confederate South, where he enlists in an elite regiment being raised by rich, eccentric Washington Faulconer.
Pledged to the Faulconer Legion, Starbuck becomes a northern boy fighting for the southern cause. But nothing can prepare him for the shocking violence to follow in the war which broke America in two.

Gripping

A gripping story told by the most excellent BC, the narrator is somewhat precise though which does detract from the story. 😕

Great story - Narrator grows on you

I read this some years ago so knew it was a great story.
I was disappointed with the narrator but the dramatic voices were ok and he grows on you through the book.
On the whole an enjoyable audio experience.
