The first shots are fired in Charleston, South Carolina and it has the families both sending members off to war. The inevitable has happened and Billy Hazard joins up with the Union and Charles joins the Confederacy. However, Billy and Charles manage to remain friends even though they will not see one another for some time. However, when Billy is sent to Libby prison, he will meet up with Charles again. I don't want to give too much away here but it had me on pins and needles the entire time.
There are so many memorable moments in this book that I can't begin to write all of them down. Charles and his horse on their last ride together; Charles' rescue of Billy on several occasions; Virgilia and Ashton's absolute villainy; Orry and Madeline's great love, Charles parting with Augusta because he fears his death might hurt her too much; the list goes on and on and John Jakes writes about all of these so masterfully that I did not want this book to end.
John Jakes has written masterpieces in "North and South" and "Love and War". The fact that at over 1000 pages I did not want the end to come is testament to that. The sorrow of lost love, the elation of love found, the horror of man's inhumanity to man and the tragedy of war are stunningly told in Love and War. A truly stunning achievement.
