Solo el teniente coronel Burton tiene el conocimiento del terreno necesario para buscarla .

Cain at Gettysburg is one of the finest historical novels I’ve ever read about the Civil War, if not one of the best books of historical fiction to come my way. The writing is excellent, and the narrative of Pickett’s charge was thrilling. An excellent addition to the many books written about Gettysburg.

Welshman Abel Jones, a veteran of the British Army’s mid-19th century Indian wars, had put his military past behind him when he married his childhood sweetheart and settled in Pottsville, Pennsylvania. The outbreak of the Civil War in his newly-adopted country has Jones volunteering in Union blue to lend his military experience to raw recruits. A crippling injury in the Battle of Bull Run lands Jones in an administrative role, keeping accounts and procuring uniforms for the army. When a popular young abolitionist captain is murdered outside a Union camp, rumors fly that the Confederates are behind it. With evidence pointing toward the young man’s Union comrades as possible culprits, Jones is tasked with investigating the death and finding the truth before events spin out of control.

Author Parry successfully creates an authentic-feeling Civil War atmosphere from start to finish. Captain Jones possess admirable qualities, including a strong sense of justice and duty, and his love for his wife and infant son. However, he expresses strong prejudices against the Irish and other ethnic groups who hadn’t yet “melted” into the American pot, and he occasionally uses racial slurs that are as offensive today as they were to their 19th-century targets. The mystery plot would have benefited from the same attention to detail as the setting and characters received. Jones did not conduct a methodical investigation, and his first-person account of his search for the murderer suffered as a result.

Interesting scenario in novel form about a "post-cold-war" massive conflict; a potential future (although maybe not the most likely). Essentially, Islamist terrorism going nuclear, Europe going fascist, and the US split between religious expeditionary warfare and those maintaining civic nationalist institutions like the Army and USMC. In some areas the book is a bit heavy-handed, but it's at least interesting.

Any military scenario where the US military isn't far-and-away more powerful than any adversary requires a lot of leaps fancy, and I don't know if "US becomes a theocracy" is anywhere near the most plausible, but from that assumption, it's a decent scenario and story after that.… (més)
