Summary (From the publisher):

When a nation's attention turns toward war, many opportunities for crime arise. Against the backdrop of brothers fighting brothers and cities and states under siege, civilians and soldiers alike may conspire to use the cover of conflict to steal, cheat, spy, and even murder for many reasons -- ranging from the honor of their cause to personal gain. Sometimes the crimes committed to further the war aims of one side or the other can be the most terrible of all.

These stories, the majority of which were written specifically for this book, are all set within the Confederacy. They vary from the war-ravaged city of Richmond, Virginia, where a husband and wife run an unusual boarding house, to two brothers fighting on opposite sides and the terrible price one will pay for a sense of happiness. From men and women doing their patriotic duty to rogues and criminals refining their craft under the cover of combat, the savage side of war is revealed in these stories of murder most Confederate.
