The Battle Hymn Cycle

New York Times bestselling author Ralph Peters’s award-winning, historical military fiction series, The Battle Hymn Cycle, chronicles the major battles of the American Civil War as Union and Confederate, North and South, Blue and Gray, engage in the nation’s most devastating conflict.
