Sequel to The Flags of War. This book sees Sunday fighting in the famous Robert Shaw all black regiment (Glory is the movie they made about it) surviving and being sent back to the South to work as a slave. (He is seen as being stupid because he has no tongue and cannot talk). Nate is also back in the South, disillusioned and angry and fighting for a cause he does not believe. Walt meanwhile, has been thrown into an officer's prison despite not being an officer and is in the process of tunneling out. The three will meet again but will one betray the other two?

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

This sequel to The Flags of War continues the adventures of two cousins, Walt and Nate McGregor, and of Sunday, the former slave on Nate's father's plantation. They have survived the carnage at Shiloh. But the war rages on. Nate returns to the family plantation to find it in ruins. In despair he turns back to the only life he knows - the army. Meanwhile, Walt and Sunday re-enlist to fight for their beliefs, no matter how great the danger. The three young men meet again at the notorious Libby prison in Virginia: Nate as a guard, Sunday a slave and Walt a prisoner. Their grim reunion at Libby - where prison walls divide them - highlights the complexity of a war that tore a nation apart. In such a terrible place, can the three battle-scarred soldiers hope for anything more than survival?… (more)
