Product Description .
Once too often in the War Between the States, Great Britain’s support for the Confederacy takes it to the brink of war with the Union. Tsouras reaffirms his status as a leading author of alternate military history in this story of a path untaken: the outbreak in 1863 of a war between Great Britain and the Union. The cause of the conflict is plausible, the details of combat are credible, and the narrative is a page-turner. He is a master of synergizing reality and fiction. From the bayous of Louisiana to the green hills of the Hudson Valley, from Chicago in flames to the gates of Washington itself, the Great War uncoils in ropes of fire.
