5.0 out of 5 stars A cracking good read, 29 Oct. 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Rebel (The Starbuck Chronicles, Book 1) (Paperback)
A rather ropey start sets this novel of the American Civil War off on the wrong foot, but stick with it few the first half dozen pages and you're in for a treat. Good characterisation and wonderfully patient description rub shoulders with high action in a novel which shows Cornwell is capable of a good deal more than the Sharpe novels which brought him to fame. Rebel is the first of a series of novels (subtitled The Starbuck Chronicles) which chart the history of Nathanial Starbuck, a Northerner who turns his back on his own kind to join the Confederate army of the South. In addition to the jibes and aggravation of his new brothers in arms, Starbuck must deal with the ethical problems of fighting against friends and family through some of the biggest battlkes of the conflict. All in all a cracking good read and highly recommended to anyone with an interest in America's most turbulent times.
