Product Description

A special three-in-one edition of John Jakes’ North and South Trilogy

In North and South, the first volume of John Jakes’s acclaimed and sweeping saga, a friendship is threatened by the divisions of the Civil War. In the years leading up to the Civil War, one enduring friendship embodies the tensions of a nation. Orry Main from South Carolina and George Hazard from Pennsylvania forge a lasting bond while training at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Together they fight in the Mexican-American War, but their closeness is tested as their regional politics diverge. As the first rounds are fired at Fort Sumter, Orry and George find themselves on different sides of the coming struggle. In John Jakes’s unmatched style, North and South launches a trilogy that captures the fierce passions of a country at the precipice of disaster.

In Love and War, the Main and Hazard families clash on and off the Civil War’s battlefields as they grapple with the violent realities of a divided nation. With the Confederate and Union armies furiously fighting, the once-steadfast bond between the Main and Hazard families continues to be tested. From opposite sides of the conflict, they face heartache and triumph on the frontlines as they fight for the future of the nation and their loved ones. With his impeccable research and unfailing devotion to the historical record, John Jakes offers his most enthralling and enduring tale yet.

In Heaven and Hell, the battle between the Mains and Hazards—and Confederate and Union armies—comes to a brilliant end. The last days of the Civil War bring no peace for the Main and Hazard families. As the Mains’ South smolders in the ruins of defeat, the Hazards’ North pushes blindly for relentless industrial progress. Both the nation and the families’ long-standing bond hover on the brink of destruction. In the series’ epic conclusion, Jakes expertly blends personal conflict with historical events, crafting a haunting page-turner about America’s constant change and unyielding hope.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great !!! 23 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Saw the TV series of North & South and Love & War Years ago and they were good but the books are even better. J R R Tolkien wrote the masterpiece The Lord of the Rings and as a work these books equal that, the shear detail of events, as they actually historically happened, and how they affect the Characters, (from the slaves in the South,to the Slave owners, and those from the South opposed to "(The Peculiar Institution) and of course those in the North including those with Southern sympathies is truly absorbing. The pace of the tale never stands still and as a result I am finding I simply don't want to put the book down.....Well worth the money and would advise anyone to buy the trilogy if you can afford it at the time as you will find you buy one and you simply must then buy the second. Not got to Heaven & Hell yet (the third book) but I fully expect it to prove a great ending.

Loved these books when I first read them and also enjoyed the television series so am looking forward to reading them again on my Kindle. Great story about the fortunes of two families on opposite sides in the American Civil War. Highly recommend these books if you like adventure and romance, a great read!
