Ralph Peters is a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and author. Peters appeared frequently as an analyst on Fox News until March 2018 when he resigned, calling the network a "propaganda machine" for the Trump administration and accused the network of "wittingly harming our system of government for profit." - Wikipedia
"Union Major Abel Jones, Welsh immigrant and veteran of Britain's distant wars, survives the battle's slaughter only to face the riddle of a different kind of massacre. Far from the cries and smoke of combat, forty murdered slaves hang at a crossroads. Their blood may be on Northern as well as Southern hands, with devastating political repercussions. Though few are concerned over the lost lives, one man insists on justice -- a plain-speaking officer with a Welsh lilt, a limp, and his own troubled conscience. But the chain of death soon proves as brutal and consuming as the war itself, dragging Major Jones into a dark world of midnight savagery, ritual murder, and sudden combat, as desperate men and women struggle to survive the fury of a divided nation."
