A good second offering in the series, thoroughly enjoyed reading it, the Starbuck books seem to be getting a lot of poor reviews but if you take them for a lighthearded read and nothing to serious then then you will enjoy reading them.

Copperhead is an enjoyable read. The central character Nathaniel Starbuck, whilst not as immediately likeable as Richard Sharpe does grow on you and many of the secondary characters are better than in the Sharpe novels. What makes the book is the historical backdrop of the American civil war. The book like all of Bernard Cornwell's books is well researched and well written. The battle scenes are particularly well written and the pace of the novel is good throughout.

Volume 2 in Cornwell's series about the American Civil War. How could a Northerner fight for the rebellious South? Or a Southerner work for the hated Union victory? Very easily and with great difficulty in both cases, it turns out.

The author's forte is military history and descriptions of battle, but he proves here that he is good at inner conflict too.

I found that I was quite skeptical upon opening this book for the first time, but was soon drawn into the character of Nate Starbuck as Cromwell developed his story. I will link up with Book 3 as time goes on, but can highly recommend Copperhead to other readers as a more involved insight into life in the midst of the American Civil War.

A real page turner. I got the feeling that the battle descriptions stuck very closely to the actual facts . A better map would have helped. One with contours and the army's dispositions would have helped

Cornwall has created another rebellious hero who fights the world as well as the opposition. A good holiday read as not hard going.

Not as good as the sharpe books or the Saxon books but still worth the read , still the best writer off historical fiction

Bernard Cornwell takes you close to the local feeling, aroma, and deprivation that this era offers with the utmost ease

Excellent book, Cleverly interwoven historical fact and fiction. A good 'don't want to put down' read.
