    Description from the Author

    Note: To list the description, it was necessary to select a rating star. This was arbitrary so please ignore.

    Shadow of the Flags is the first book in the story of the MacKendrick Army family; who live by West Point’s motto of Duty, Honor, Country. It may appeal to readers who enjoy historical fiction, family saga, and military fiction. James MacKendrick and his younger brother, Timothy, are both graduates of West Point but have been raised in a proud Virginia family. When Civil War rips their country apart, each must make the heartbreaking decision as to whether to stay loyal to the United States or join the tide of other Southern-bred officers who choose to follow their home states out of the Union. For James, the decision revolves around his affection for his Virginia homeland as well as personal ambition. Graduated at the top of his class, James understands that great men often rise from the anonymity of the battlefield. For lighthearted Timothy, in his first exciting assignment with the 1st Cavalry, the decision carries a heavy burden: West Point and his determination to honor his soldier’s commitment against his strong friendships with J.E.B. Stuart and Fitzhugh Lee.

    In Shadow of the Flags, the reader encounters the full panoply of West Point’s legendary Band of Brothers: Robert E. Lee, J.E.B. Stuart, Fitzhugh Lee, Philip Sheridan, George Custer, and Philip St. George Cooke to name only a few of the historical personages who march through the pages of this sweeping saga. From First Manassas to Reconstruction, the MacKendricks confront their destinies on the field of battle and in the loving arms of their women.

    Loved it

    I was actually looking for a bit more story and a little less history but I have no complaints. I was absolutely enthralled from beginning to end.

    Very interesting story line. Great read.

    I really enjoyed this book and the characters and look forward to following them. I thought the story was told from a neat perpective and you got a good understanding of key historical figures, events, battles and the personal challenges/sacrafices of being on either side of the civil war. Also it was pretty clean which I appreciate.
