The precursor to the Great War series, How Few Remain is the alternative historical account of the 2nd war between the United States and the Confederate States following their defeat during the Civil War. In 1881, the two Americas again go to war following the CSA annexation of Mexican territory, unleashing new weapons, tactics, and refuelling the rivalry that will haunt them for years to come. And issues forth a new American politic power - Socialism.
In typical fashion, the story is told through the eyes of multiple characters on both sides of the war, and from all walks of life.
