Critically acclaimed author Bernard Cornwell's Nathaniel Starbuck Chronicles have been hailed by The Washington Times as the "best thing to hit Civil War fiction since Michael Shaara's The Killer Angels." Nate is given command of a battalion of undesirable soldiers-including deserters and murderers -and sent to join the action at Antietam Creek. There, during the bloodiest single day of the entire war, Nate and his men must find the courage to survive the brutal horrors of combat.
