Confederates Summary


Confederates by Thomas Keneally

With a new introduction by Thomas Keneally.

'The best novel of the Civil War since The Red Badge of Courage'
Newsweek

As the Civil War tears America apart, General Stonewall Jackson leads a troop of Confederate soldiers on a long trek towards the battle they believe will be a conclusive victory. Through their hopes, fears and losses, Keneally searingly conveys both the drama and mundane hardship of war, and brings to life one of the most emotive episodes in American history.
