Two mighty armies blunder toward each other, one led by confident, beloved Robert E. Lee and the other by dour George Meade. They'll meet in a Pennsylvania crossroads town where no one planned to fight. In this sweeping, savagely realistic novel, the greatest battle ever fought on American soil explodes into life at Gettysburg. As generals squabble, staffs err. 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. There are no marble statues here, only men of flesh and blood, imperfect and courageous. 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.

"Author and former U.S. Army officer Ralph Peters re-creates the most important and bloodiest battle in the Civil War in his new novel. 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's 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. R.O.
