This Scorched Earth (2018)
William Gear
"William M. Gear has written a sweeping epic of our time, the Lonesome Dove of our decade.It's an epic of the Civil War, beautifully illustrating not just the brutality of the Civil War but also how the war changed men, women, and families as they fled nightmares and memories. If you don't mind tasting coppery fear, feeling blood seep through your fingers, and being shocked by the roar of cannon as friends fall around you, pick this one up."
