It is late summer 1862 and the Confederacy is at last invading the United States of America. Nathaniel Starbuck, the northern preacher’s son who fights for the rebel South, is given command of a punishment battalion, a despised unit of shriekers and cowards. His enemies expect the appointment to be his downfall. To prove them wrong, Starbuck must lead the ramshackle unit against the northern garrison at Harper’s Ferry and then across the frontier to the bank of the Antietam Creek. There he will fight in what will prove to be the bloodiest battle of the Civil War.
A superbly exciting novel which vividly captures the horror of the battlefield, 'The Bloody Ground' is the fourth volume in the Starbuck Chronicles.
” The best so far in Cornwell’s American Civil War series … The cacophony of the cornfield slaughter is stunningly conveyed”
“ Cornwell is as masterly as ever at conjuring up the grisly nature of nineteenth century campaigning and the terrifying adrenaline surge experienced on a battlefield reeking of black powder and blood”
“ A very fine novel indeed; Bernard Cornwell at his distinctive best … builds to a gripping climax … stirring stuff”
“ Cornwell is a natural storyteller with a vivid sense of history”
