Historical Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1996

Bostonian rebel Nathaniel Starbuck has been yanked out of his cherished Faulkner’s Legion to lead a raggedy band of the Confederacy’s worst soldiers into the Battle of Antietam. While turning his group of cowards, sneaks, murderers, and drunks into a strong fighting unit, Major Starbuck rediscovers his own courage and earns yet more respect among his Southern comrades. Tom Parker’s strong, clear voice moves easily from bloody battlefield to military intrigue, from rough soldier to educated attorney, employing a number of dialects throughout the story. His characters for the most part clearly distinguish themselves from each other. Parker’s women receive a lighter touch, although their part in the story is minimal. The bloodiest battle in the Civil War comes to life in Parker's expert narration. R.P.L. © AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 02]
