Bold and telling, The Battle for North Carolina by Robert W. Hester is a stunning portrait of Southerner's epic sacrifices made fighting for freedom during the War Between the States. This masterfully written and meticulously researched novel, following Hester's epic The Battle for Georgia, heroically depicts the true horror of the War-hard-fought battles filled with bloodshed, betrayal, and remorse that shattered the plans of the Yankee invaders. From the diary of a young Annie Gibbs Blount, to a young confused boy's uncompromised life of intrigue, the narrative sketches the violent confrontations between the Blue and Gray. With eager, passionate men like John Maffit,at the helm, the Southern resistance flourished from sea battles off Carolina's 'Graveyard of the Atlantic' to villages of the coastal plain. With a revealing preface, the author sets a somber, if resilient tone, garnering the deep emotions of humanity and further sharing an important part of our nation's history.
