Manuscript Title: THE BATTLE OF JETTENA JUNCTION

The Battle of Jettena Junction is a remarkable work. This intriguing combination of fiction work and history textbook subverts and reverses the expectations of historical fiction, using plot as the backdrop for history rather than history as the backdrop for plot—a history book with a dash of fiction rather than a fiction book with a dash of history.

APOLLOGIES

Good news for all following my facebook and web page-now that the first book has been accepted as I research the second part, I will add blogs again-about time

Title

A battle ten thousand years in the making that changed the course of history in one day

 

Plot

The Confederacy had suffered dramatic defeats in recent months-Gettysburg, Vicksburg and Chattanooga-and was on the ropes-with the Union gaining the upper hand of the war.

Even though the Confederacy was in high spirits, it was on the verge of collapse. One more devastating defeat would see its cause fail and bring victory to the Union.

So when the opportunity arose to bring to an end the most deadly war on American soil, the Confederacy took the opportunity of capturing President Lincoln as he travelled to Gettysburg to honour the fallen.

Where was the best place to stage an ambush?

A small Pennsylvanian rail siding.

However the simple hit and run assault turned into a rout for the Confederacy and the cream of its forces faced total annihilation?

Incompetent leadership, poor intelligence, deceit, betrayal, greed, and misunderstood orders all played a big part in the bloody climax at Jettena Junction
