In the Valley of the Shadow, they wrote their names in blood.
From a daring Confederate raid that nearly seized
Washington, D.C., to a stunning reversal on the bloody
fields of Cedar Creek, the summer and autumn of 1864
witnessed some of the fiercest fighting of our Civil War--in
mighty battles now all but forgotten.
The desperate struggle for mastery of Virginia's Shenandoah
Valley, breadbasket of the Confederacy and the South's key
invasion route into the North, pitted a remarkable cast of
heroes in blue and gray against each other: runty,
rough-hewn Phillip Sheridan, a Union general with an uncanny
gift for inspiring soldiers, and Jubal Early, his
Confederate counterpart, stubborn, raw-mouthed and deadly;
the dashing Yankee boy-general, George Armstrong Custer, and
the brilliant, courageous John Brown Gordon, a charismatic
Georgian who lived one of the era's greatest love stories.
From hungry, hard-bitten Rebel privates to a pair of Union
officers destined to become presidents, from a neglected
hero who saved our nation's capital and went on to write one
of his century's greatest novels, to doomed Confederate
leaders of incomparable valor, Ralph Peters brings to life
yesteryear's giants and their breathtaking battles with the
same authenticity, skill and insight he offered readers in
his prize-winning Civil War bestsellers, Cain at Gettysburg
and Hell or Richmond.
Sharp as a bayonet and piercing as a bullet, Valley of the
Shadow is a great novel of our grandest, most-tragic war.
