Vicksburg, the fifth volume in James Reasoner's Civil War Battle series, is the latest installment in the saga of the Brannon family of Culpeper County, Va. Fighting to defend the Mississippi town in October 1862, Cory Brannon, a courageous young Confederate soldier, is determined to hold firm and stay in one piece long enough to wed his true love, Lucille Farrell, a proud fighter in her own right. There are three more volumes to come in this commodious drama, so series fans should reserve shelf space.
