Description -

"Mary Johnston's THE LONG ROLL and CEASE FIRING are quite possibly the best Civil War novels ever written..."

Cease Firing picks up where Mary Johnston s previous book, The Long Roll leaves off. We rejoin Richard Cleave, the Confederate artillery officer, as he experiences the battles of Gettysburg, Chickamauga, the Wilderness, and Spotsylvania; and whose journey finally ends at Appomattox. Cleave can sense that the war is being lost; and he is torn between that knowledge and his sense of duty and honor. Through it all, Johnston s attention to historical detail never falters as we are realistically propelled into Cleave s fascinating world.

Prominently featured also is Confederate General Joseph E. Johnston, from whom Mary Johnston is descended.
