Overview

North America—1895: Decades after defeating the Union, the Confederate States of America, the last slaveholding nation in the New World, has become a major power in the western hemisphere. To the north, a disheartened, defeated, and isolationist United States stands alone.
Seeking to expand its sphere of influence, the Confederacy has set its eyes on the island of Cuba, the prize possession of the Spanish Empire. When the CSS Mississippi is mysteriously destroyed in Havana, the Confederate States of America declare war against the Kingdom of Spain. While Confederate and Spanish battleships wage war on the high seas, and the Confederate Army prepares for an invasion of Cuba, events elsewhere threaten to expand the conflict into a world war of epic proportions.
Across the Atlantic, the British Empire, opposing Confederate expansionism as nothing but an extension of slavery, threatens the Confederacy with economic disaster. In the United States, an embittered millionaire raises a mercenary army to fight for the Spanish. And within the Confederacy itself, an aging Stonewall Jackson leads a desperate uphill battle to end slavery once and for all before the fires of servile insurrection spread across the South.
In this epic sequel to By Force of Arms, Billy Bennett weaves an exciting tale of love and war, freedom and tyranny, and tragedy and triumph.
