Product Description

Synopsis

In this seventh volume of the ten-volume Civil War Battle Series, the action spans the area from Pennsylvania and Virginia to Georgia, Mississippi, and Illinois. The seven members of the Brannon clan of Culpeper County, Virginia, experience a wide range of the many hardships of war. First came the news of Lee's defeat at Gettysburg, followed almost immediately by word of the fall of Vicksburg. These Southern setbacks of July 1863 have fallen hard on the Brannons, for two sons were with Lee in Pennsylvania and one was at Vicksburg. They still mourn the loss of another, Titus, presumed dead but actually interned in a Northern prison camp for seven months. Mac Brannon, in Stuart's cavalry, helps to protect the Army of Northern Virginia as it withdraws to Virginia. Of special concern to him are the ambulance wagons, one of which carries his wounded brother, Will. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

"Chickamauga," Book 7 in The Civil War Battle Series by James Reasoner, is probably the best book in the series to date, mostly because it pretty much avoids the two major complaints readers have had about the series overall. First, the soap opera elements, which tend to overshadow the battles, are reduced greatly. Yes, the Henry and Polly romance continues unabated, the wounded Will Bannon has found a nice widow lady, and even Cordelia might have found someone, but at least for once there is nothing alluding to the unnatural interest of Duncan Ebersole in his daughter. More importantly the titular battle of this volume does not just pop up in the last dozen pages. Ironically, it is actually over by that point in the book. The battle of Chickamauga is told from the perspective of Cory Bannon, who leaves Vicksburg to rejoin Nathan Bedford Forrest's calvary. I have not actually gone back and checked, but I think Reasoner devotes more chapters to this battle than any other one in this entire series which underscores another irony at work here, which is that Chickamauga is clearly the least famous battle of the seven in which the Bannon brothers have been involved to this point. This is far and away the best battle sequence in the entire battle series. With three volumes to go, I assume Reasoner will get us back to Virginia and Grant's first clashes with Lee, conclude the war in the West with Sherman's march through Georgia, and then finish up the Civil War in the Bannon's back yard. At that point, we will finally tally up the bill and see what price this family had to pay for being on the wrong side of the war.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome 11 Jun 2002
By Anne B. Burgamy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the 7th book in a series of 10 by Mr. Reasoner. I have read all the ones that have been published so far. My only complaint is that they aren't published fast enough! Mr. Reasoner is a fantastic author. His wording makes you "see" where the characters are. I read this book in just a very short time, losing sleep because I just couldn't put it down. His historical facts are accurate in every book. Everyone that likes to read about the Civil War should read these books. They would even be good reading for someone not familiar with the battles because his story lines are so good. Please hurry and get #8 published - it's gonna be hard to wait.

5.0 out of 5 stars Facing Defeat 9 May 2003
By Westy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
After the losses at Gettysburg and Vicksburg, the Confederacy hopes to regroup. Mac and Will Brannon, one badly wounded, retreat with Robert E. Lee's forces into Virginia. Meanwhile, Titus and Cordelia's former beau, Nathan Hatcher, find themselves in desperate straits in a Northern prison camp, while Cory continues to find himself thrown into battle, despite never having enlisted. And, at home, Henry, the youngest Brannon brother, his mother Abigail, and sister Cordelia, face problems of their own... not the least of which is Henry's growing feelings for his brother's wife, Polly.
Another well-written, gripping volume in The Civil War Battle Series.

It was an interesting book, but not a "can't put it down" one. I would give it four stars out of 5.
3.0 out of 5 stars Story Ends Abruptly but History Factual 14 Mar 2011
By G. Dwyer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The author must have been on a deadline to complete this book as the story ends abruptly. There are 4 brothers being followed in this story and the author sets each of the 4 stories up well in the first quarter of this 400 page novel. Unfortunately the author spends way too much time (over half of the book) on one of the brothers riding with N.B. Forrest and as a result, concludes the other 3 brothers stories in the last 3 pages of the book. Clearly a sequel could come from this book. Unfortunately the author concludes the story of the other brothers so abruptly that you feel cheated having become interested in their outcome only to have them quickly dismissed.
4.0 out of 5 stars A War Torn Family 2 Sep 2009
By Ruth Thompson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
The South has to try and over come the lost at Vicksburg and Gettysburg. The Brannon family face one son in retreat with Lee, one severely wounded, Cory still in the fight, and Titus is at Ft. Douglas Prison Camp where conditions are horrible. On the home front the youngest brother Henry eyes are on the forbidden. Again, Reasoner keeps you entertain with the drama of the Brannon family. By Ruth Thompson author of "Natchez Above The River"
