About the Book

You are listening to a brief audio introduction to
THE GETTYSBURG TRILOGY.

 

This is the story of a world laid bare, of an insane time.

It is July, 1863. In the heat of summer the land is a killing ground over which two armies have recently spilled blood. The Civil War is both two years done and has two years remaining; long enough on both accounts for good men to know what has been, and what is coming. Into this shattered humanity comes a battlefield hospital and its disparate souls, including Dr. Josiah Boyd, a Union surgeon whose sanity falls far short of his skill with a knife.

In the wreckage of one of the greatest battles ever fought comes the story of a strange and blighted land, where the price of a man’s life is less than the shoes on his feet. It is a land strewn with thousands of broken men, where the dead animals lay thick as the meadow grass, the water is poison, and the hospitals are the last place a wounded man can rest.

For as far as the eye can see the earth is awash with an endless array of soldiers, and not a one among them whole.
