“A must for Civil War buffs!” Baldwin Ledger
“Moreau’s research is impeccable and smoothly incorporated, and his descriptions of battle scenes are vivid.” Publishers Weekly
“Tom Parker splendidly performs this fictional account of the battle of Antietam…All the characters are consistently rendered with great skill…Listening to a work such as this puts one into the confusion, excitement, and horror of combat.” AudioFile
“A passionate retelling of a legendary battle.” Booklist
“Parker deserves enormous credit for bringing this story to life. His fully voiced presentation gives each character his own voice and personality. These men knew that, in reality, there is no glory in war.” Kliatt
