Grant Comes East : A Novel of the Civil War

By Newt & Forstchen, William R Gingrich

St. Martin's Press, USA, 2006. Paperback. Very Good/Good. 404 pages. Covers have light creasing. Edges of boards have superficial wear. Pages are lightly tanned. Praise for "Gettysburg "Well-executed alternative history. The authors show thorough knowledge of the people, weapons, tactics, and ambience of the Civil War. A veritable feast. The novel has a narrative drive and vigor that make the climactic battle scene a real masterpiece of its kind." - "Publishers Weekly "Gingrich and Forstchen write with authority and with sensitivity." - "St. Louis Post-Dispatch "["Gettysburg] is believable and beautifully written...every bit as good as Michael Sharra's "The Killer Angels. Not only do Gingrich and Forstchen bring the characters to life, and often horrible death, but they do so with memorable observations on the ways of war and vivid, technically accurate descriptions of frightful Civil War combat." - "The Courier Journal (Kentucky) "An eye-opener...filled with gore, smoke, heat of battle, and a surprise ending. The writing is vivid and clear. A ripping good read." - "Washington Times "Two respected historians, one horrific battle---and the challenging question of 'what if?' Sure to become a Civil War classic to be read and remembered." - W. E. B. Griffin, author of "Final Justice "Gettysburg is a creative, clever, and fascinating 'what if' novel that promises to excite and entertain America's legions of Civil War buffs." - James Carville "As historical fiction this stands beside "The Killer Angels. As an alternative history of Gettysburg, it stands alone. The mastery of operational history enables the authors to expand the story's scope. The larger-scale, more fluid battle of Gettysburg described is internally consistent, a logical consequence of the novel's challenging major premise. The narrativeis so clear that the action can be followed without maps. And the characters are sometimes heartbreakingly true to their historical originals." - Dennis Showalter, former president of the Society of Military Historians Quantity Available: 1.

The year 1198. All of Wales is in turmoil.King Maelgwyn ap Cadwallon, known to his people as Noble, is struggling to protect his small kingdom from treacherous Welsh princes and Roger Mortimer, an ambitious English baron who murdered Noble's father years earlier. Desperate to secure a peace treaty, the king grimly agrees to a political marriage with Isabel Mortimer, Roger's niece. Isabel, not yet twenty, is confounded by the intimacy and informality of the Welsh court, which to her foreign eyes looks barbaric and backward. As determined and willful as she is naïve, she eventually earns the respect and affection of her husband and his subjects -- with the notable exception of Gwirion, the king's oldest and oddest friend, who has a particular, private reason to hate Mortimers. Gwirion's rascally tricks and diversions are expected -- and relished -- by all at Cymaron Castle. But a disastrous prank played during the royal wedding ignites a volatile competition between queen and confidant for the king's affection, with most unexpected consequences. As Mortimer makes it apparent that he has no intention of honoring the peace treaty, the bond between Noble and Isabel grows strained. And when Gwirion and Isabel's mutual animosity is abruptly transformed, Noble finds himself as threatened by those he loves best as by the enemies who menace his crown. Quantity Available: 1.

A fleet of British transport ships are looming off Staten Island, while on Brooklyn Heights the remnants of General George Washington's army is huddled behind hastily constructed fortifications. There, Captain Isaac Biddlecomb seeks Washington's aid in the reinstatement of his first officer- only to find that Washington is preparing for the destruction of the Continental army.Biddlecomb, commanding the brig-of-war Charlemagne, receives a monumental order. He is to transport to France the most dangerous secret weapon in the country's arsenal: scientist and philosopher Benjamin Franklin. Leading a new crew through the wintry North Atlantic, braving the cordon of the Royal Navy, Biddlecomb's seemingly simple mission to deliver Franklin to the court of Louis XVI is just the first volley in a grand scheme. While Biddlecomb is boldly raiding the English Coast and Franklin is strategising at Versailles, they both conspire to blow French neutrality out of the water - and turn the colonial uprising into a full-scale war.
