They’ll meet in a Pennsylvania crossroads town where no one planned to fight.

Tragedy unfolds for immigrants in blue and barefoot rebels alike. The fate of the nation will be decided in a few square miles of fields.

Following a tough Confederate sergeant from the Blue Ridge, a bitter Irish survivor of the Great Famine, a German political refugee, and gun crews in blue and gray, Cain at Gettysburg, from New York Times bestselling author and former US Army officer Ralph Peters, is bound to become a classic of men at war.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ralph Peters has done the seemingly impossible. He has found a new way to tell the story of Gettysburg and simultaneously restore a great general to his rightful place in our minds and hearts.” Thomas Fleming, New York Times bestselling author
Brilliant is an adjective one is tempted to wear out in describing this book, because so little of it falls below that level.” Booklist (starred review)
“Peters’s colorful depictions of harsh army life and the utter chaos of battles are accurate and convincing, revealing that there’s no idealism on the battlefield, just men doing gruesome and frightening work.” Publishers Weekly
“Action-packed treatment of one of the bloodiest episodes of the Civil War, rendered with all due gruesomeness…Peters’ novel holds up well, and it’s welcome in the vast library of books about the Civil War’s great turning point.” Kirkus Reviews
“Narrator Peter Berkrot portrays the huge cast of Yankee and Rebel officers and infantrymen with drama and heartfelt care. Berkrot delivers accents from both sides of the conflict with a gifted actor’s confidence. He increases the tempo of his delivery to match the urgent pace of preparation for the three-day battle—which ultimately decided the war. Peters’ attention to detail, aided by Berkrot’s careful delivery, creates in the imagination of the listener all the glory, the greatness, and the tragedy of Gettysburg.” AudioFile
