From the Back Cover
Captain Nathaniel Starbuck has survived the early battles of the Civil War, but his northern breeding still makes him an object of suspicion to many of his southern comrades, and his enmity with his regiment's founder, General Washington Faulconer, makes his position even harder.
When Faulconer attempts to discipline his opponents, he sets in train events that will culminate in a savage battle – and Starbuck, his friends and his enemies will find themselves once more staring death in the face.
A superb story of courage, friendship and betrayal, 'Battle Flag' is the third volume in Bernard Cornwell's Starbuck Chronicles.
"Cornwell unerringly hits his form…battle-scenes of exceptional grandeur pictured in brisk, pungent prose"
DAVID HUGHES, 'Mail on Sunday'
"Admirable catches the chaotic and bloody nature of the action…It's a State-of-the-art Shawbuckler"
"A Humdinger of a bloods-and-guts battle"
"Cornwell's descriptions…have a narrative verve excitement which sweep the reader along behind Jackson and Lee"
T. J. BINYON, 'Standard'
