First UK edition, first print hardback of THE BLOODY GROUND - A Novel in the Starbuck Chronicles, by Bernard Cornwell and published by Harper Collins Publisher Ltd., London in 1996. Jacket illustration by Gino D'Achille. Full number line 1 3 5 7 9 8 6 4 2.

The book is in very good condition (Clean dark green cloth boards with silver lettering on spine) with slight wear to the dust jacket, which is not price clipped (slight creasing to edges, a small 1cm closed tear with a piece of tape attached at the top edge at the back). Internally, the pages are clean and tight and there are no tears and no inscriptions. There is slight tanning to the pages mainly towards the edges, and slight spinal lean.

From the dust jacket blurb:

Nathaniel Starbuck, the northern preacher's son who fights for the Confederate South, plunged into the most desperate battle of America's Civil War, the fight at Antietam, in this, the fourth novel in the Starbuck Chronicles.

It is late summer, 1862, and after beating off repeated northern attacks the Confederacy is at last invading the United States of America. The invasion is a gamble, pitting a small army against a huge one, and for its success Robert Lee will need every veteran soldier he can muster. Nathaniel Starbuck is one of those veterans, but instead of marching at the head of the Faulconer Legion, he has been given command of a Punishment Battalion, a unit composed of failures and cowards. Starbuck's enemies expect the appointment to be his ruin, and if he is to stand any chance of further success he must prove those enemies wrong by leading his ramshackle unit against the northern garrison ar Harper's Ferry and then across the frontier to the bank of the Antietam Creek. There Starbuck will fight in what will prove to be the bloodiest day in America's history.

Starbuck is not fighting the Yankees. Unknown to him one of his best friends is doing all he can to betray the South, a betrayal that will place Lee's army in a desperate trap, while in his new battalion Starbuck has enemies every bit as dangerous as those who wear the northern blue. In Antietam's cornfield, where twelve thousand men died in three terrible hours, Starbuck is caught in a crossfire of hate, envy, murder and ambition. To win is simply to survive.

Nobody can bring alive the intricacies of history with more energy or clarity than Bernard Cornwell, and his descriptions of black-powder battle are equally beyond compare. THE BLOODY GROUND will leave his army of fans well satisfied and looking forward to further adventures.

343 pages.
