An action-packed, no-holds-barred military thriller from bestselling author and former soldier Chris Ryan. Two soldiers: Britain's most celebrated military hero and a broken veteran living in the gutters of London. Their paths last crossed nearly twenty years ago. Now, amidst a hostage crisis in the Middle East, their lives are about to collide again. And they're about to Strike Back. John Porter was involved in a disastrous hostage extraction in Lebanon in 1989. Torn by guilt over the deaths, and struggling to come to terms with the past, John is an alcoholic rough sleeper. Colonel Peregrine Collinson was involved in the same raid. He was awarded a Military Cross and is heralded as a hero. After the raid, their lives couldn't have been further apart. Until now. A hostage crisis in the Middle East draws them back together for the first time in decades, but both men have secrets they've kept all this time - which might be dragged into the light. Who will be the hero this time?

In the late summer of 1862, after a series of victories culminating in the Union Armys rout at Second Manassas, General Lee and his commanders meet with President Davis and Secretary of State Judah Benjamin near that blood-soaked battleground to arrange a highly controversial and risky campaign for the fall. General Lee agrees to divide his Army of Northern Virginia by sending his most trusted general, Thomas Stonewall Jackson, to Kentucky with three Divisions by railcars to Knoxville, Tennessee. Jacksons Corps is ordered to march into Kentucky and meet with two other Confederate armies, those of Braxton Bragg and Kirby Smith, to secure that state for the Confederacy. In 1862 The Confederates Strike Back, author Kevin Carroll offers a fictional work of military history that envisions what might have happened if commanders at the time had made other choices. The story journeys through a series of hypothetical historical events once the Battle of Second Manassas is complete. Laced with military strategy, tactical maneuvering, and unforeseen complications caused by the fog of war, 1862 The Confederates Strike Back is complete with details on orders of battle that were accurate in late summer of 1862. It presents a realistic and plausible alternative to the historical events as they occurred. Can General Lee hold on and buy the time Jackson needs to complete his mission and return to Virginia? Will the risky strategy backfire on the South? Will the Confederacy achieve Independence?
