THE BRIGHT SWORD

A novel of the last year of the Civil War when the Confederate General Hood and his Army of Tennessee were ""fought to a frazzle"" is based on the historical and military annals of these months. For Hood there is the unrequited courtship of ""Buck"" Campbell. Her brother dies under his command and the following weeks see brutal annihilation. A sober record, with the romance largely that of courage and endurance, and the final accounting is made with fitting fortitude.
