Review:

Praise for THE BLOODY GROUND:

‘The best so far in Cornwell’s American Civil War series . . . The cacophony of the cornfield slaughter is stunningly conveyed’ Daily Mail

‘A very fine novel indeed; Bernard Cornwell at his disticntive best . . . builds to a gripping climax . . . stirring stuff’ Sunday Telegraph

‘Cornwell is as masterly as ever at conjuring up the grisly nature of nineteenth-century campaigning and the terrifying adrenaline surge experienced on a battlefield reeking of black powder and blood’ The Times

Praise for Bernard Cornwell:

‘The best battle scenes of any writer I’ve ever read, past or present. Cornwell really makes history come alive.’ George R.R. Martin
