Bernard Cornwell sets up a brilliant series with this opener "Rebel" It is the American Civil War and Nate Starbuck is a Yanky fighting for the south. The opening chapter just dragged me in and I couldn't stop reading. His personal story and how he ended Fantastic book.


I have read a great deal of Cornwell; Sharp. Saxon series. 1356. All were very well written. Except for the single author named on this book, I would swear it was ghost-written by a lesser craftsman. Or, perhaps generously, that this was his earliest attempt at literature and the better volumes came later. Story is predictable, and not simply because it follows history. Way too much character development. I have nothing against getting to know characters and their motivations, but anything in excess is , well, unwelcome.

Others will certainly disagree, but I am not sure how or why. I won’t be reading any other of his Civil War novels and cannot recommend that you do.
I thought I was a student of the Civil War, but I got such a different perspective of the Civil War. I never understood the motivation for non slaveholders to fight for the Confederates cause. I also did not fully appreciate how the South was able to be so successful in the early years of the War when they effectively had no established military system of supply or support for their soldiers. He does not gloss over, or apologize for the slavery, he portrays it for what it was, brutal and beyond civilized.

This may be a novel but I think that Cornwell used the facts to give a fairly accurate portrayal of the South's actions in the War Between the States. So much of the book intertwines both the North's and South's motivations and actions.

Ok, I do have one major complaint about the Starbuck Chronicles; Cornwell stopped after only four books. I could not, or my wife, put them down.
I have read most all of Bernard Cornwell's novels. Rebel, the 1st in series of 4 Civil War tales had a slow start but picked up toward middle to end. Be patient, he's worth it. Interesting protagonist, evil antagonists. Always with historical battle facts. You will enjoy his telling of background of each character. Who finds love and who longs for it. Stick with it, because the series gets better and better. After all, no one does battle scenes like Cornwell. With The Civil War as the backdrop, you will cheer for good overcoming evil.
I started reading Cornwell's Viking series and read every one of those books. Then I bought all the aurthurian books and loved them as well. This series is just as good. If you like historical fiction, there's no one that does it better. Full of good writing and excellent battles. I plan to buy all the Sharpe books when I'm done with these. If you're looking for comparisons...I'd say similar to Conn Iggulden
Little Devil
I appreciate Bernard Cornwell's writing, and have read many of his books, most particularly the Sharpe series. Starbuck, at least in this first volume, is different. While I can see echoes of Richard Sharpe, this is a very different character, fully formed (as expected) and with a definable personality which is developing through this volume.

Set during the American Civil War, the premise is a little strained in that the protagonist Nate Starbuck will choose to fight for the south. Once accepted, everything else flows well. The historical events are well described, and I am looking forward to getting a better understanding of that period in America through the medium of fiction. Battle scenes and social commentary merge well, are believable and well paced.

In short, this is another well written historical fiction series by one of my favourite authors.
These used books, costing next to nothing, are the PERFECT gift for any incarcerated person you might know .... They will be devoured by an ever-so-grateful recipient, as each one carries them outside the walls and into a world of imagination and fun. Next time you're in touch with that person, ask him/her what kinds of books they'd enjoy reading, then spend a coupla bucks - it will make a world of difference for them, and you'll feel good too. Don't let these books just sit on a shelf somewhere, when they can do so much good.
Note that most jails and prisons will not accept books directly from you, only straight from legitimate booksellers, so please consider doing something like this. In most cases, you'll spend less than 5 bucks total! Also note that 'Hardcover' books are prohibited in many systems, but 'Paperbacks' are universally OK.
As usual, Cornwell has done a great job of bringing a historic battle to life. Starbuck is developed as a noble, but flawed human and hero who overcomes his doubts about himself to become a hero of the chaotic Manassas battle. The story also presents a view into southern aristocracy with all its foibles. A great read, though not quite as good (so far) as the Sharpe series . I hope Starbuck will find his Sgt Harper in Sgt True.
Another great historical fiction by Cornwell. The author is best known as the creator of Richard Sharpe and has written many books starring the rogue. He has also written the excellent Saxon Tales series (tied with the Archer's Quest as my favorite Cornwell books).

This man is arguably the best writer of historical fiction period. The only reason I give this book four stars and not five is because I don't find the time period as interesting as that of the Saxon Tales. You cannot go wrong with anything written by Cornwell. Be careful though as you may actually learn something about history along the way.
