The Mountain War Trilogy: Novels of the American Civil War (Books #1-#3)
A sweeping saga of the war that tore a nation and its people asunder!
The Shadow Warriors (Mountain War Trilogy 1)
ACROSS A BITTER DIVIDE A LAND AND ITS PEOPLE WOULD BE CHANGED FOREVER…
In a nation cleaved by war, Tennessee was divided between North and South. It was a rugged land populated by rugged individualists, a land of fog-shrouded mountains and teeming towns, a land that would soon run with blood. Across town halls, property lines, and dinner tables, pro-Union and Secessionist camps stared each other down. Among those forced to choose sides are Amy Deacon, daughter of a rabid Secessionist, who would plunge into war’s horrors as a Union agent; Ben Scarlett, a man who had lost everything, yet who would find a glimmer of hope in the brutal darkness of war; and Sam Colter, a quiet mountaineer, who suddenly found his home turned into enemy land.
The politics and personalities, the brilliant strategies of battle and the great strokes of fortune, the hardship, bravery, and loss all come to life in one of the great Civil War novels of our time.
The Phantom Legion (Mountain War Trilogy 2)
BEHIND THE LINES OF BATTLE A LAND AND ITS PEOPLE FIGHT TO SURVIVE…
As the carnage of war continues, Tennessee finds itself torn in two: the secessionist west under the grip of Union forces, the pro-Union east sealed off by an increasingly desperate Confederacy— its agents scouring the countryside for unwilling conscripts. Elsewhere, giant armies clash and collide, while far from the thunder of war, phantom legions of bushwhackers, Union and Rebel, outlaws in all but name, raid and plunder a ravaged land. As the violent conflict grinds on, Greeley Brown risks his life on a personal mission to save a slave and her child; Amy Deacon turns war’s horrors into healing; Julius Killefer is forced to take up arms for a cause he despises; and Ben Scarlett climbs from the depths of despair to seek an unlikely redemption.
Here is a monumental novel of the North-South struggle and of the war behind the war— its causes, its conflicts, and its people brought brilliantly to life.
Season of Reckoning (Mountain War Trilogy 3)
IN A LAND RAVAGED BY WAR PEOPLE ARE TORN BETWEEN FORGIVENESS AND REVENGE…
The great Civil War is grinding slowly to a halt. But while men like Lincoln, Grant, and Lee work out the terms of the peace, in the mountains of Tennessee and North Carolina, the healing will have to wait… for this is the season of reckoning. Where once there was a cause—Union or Confederate—now there is only hatred. As the horrors of the war take their toll, former Union soldier Greeley Brown undertakes a one-man battle to free the land of a terrible evil, while his brother, a New York newsman, Thatcher Brown, bears personal witness to hell in a Confederate prison; Miriam Fry is forced to betray Greeley with the man she despises most of all; and Ben Scarlett discovers he has one last chance to reclaim his honor and save his soul.
From grit and glory to passion and pain, the war that transformed America comes alive as never before, in the pages of this unforgettable novel by renowned author Cameron Judd.
