In a war that pitted brother against brother and father against son, the Civil War ravaged the Southern landscape, leaving untold devastation, and killing more than 600,000 American soldiers. Out of this costly conflagration comes a stirring novel,MoreIn a war that pitted brother against brother and father against son, the Civil War ravaged the Southern landscape, leaving untold devastation, and killing more than 600,000 American soldiers.

Out of this costly conflagration comes a stirring novel, telling the story of Southern plantation owners and farmers, former slaves, and Northern merchants and their families, who find themselves on opposing sides during this bitter time in American history. Luke Blackstone and his brother-in-law Clayton Driscoll are officers in the Confederate army. Lukes cousin is Robert Sandcastle, a physician in the Union army, who witnesses the inhumane treatment given prisoners of war.

And then there are the brave women left behind, who must keep the home front surviving while their men are away, perhaps forever. This realistic story relives the battles, while explaining how people could regard each other with such fury that they could divest themselves of their principles to kill their own kind. The Hands of War: The Storm Breaks also describes the fear and anguish that the survivors experience well after the wars end.

Originally from New York City, Alvin S. Yusin was on the faculty of the University of Southern California, Keck School of Medicine for many years. I have always been fascinated by the Civil War, which was the only war in which the sections of the same nation fought each other, thereby dividing families and the nation. My retirement allowed me to research the various aspects of the Civil War from the many battles, to medical treatment, to how the home front acclimated, to the consequences of the war.
