With publication of THE BUCKTAIL BROTHERS: BRAVE MEN'S BLOOD by Infinity Publishing on May 1st, the historical fiction novel series about the 149th Pennsylvania Volunteers by William P. Robertson and David Rimer is now complete. Robertson was forced to finish this book alone after Rimer, his long-time writing partner, decided to retire after they penned THE BUCKTAIL BROTHERS OF THE FIGHTING 149TH.
The new book picks up the action after the Battle of Gettysburg where the "New Bucktails" lost 80% of their fighting force in a little over two hours on the first day near McPherson's barn. The adventures of the Cole Brothers of Company A from Wellsboro, Pennsylvania continue through the Wilderness, Spotsylvania Court House, North Anna, Cold Harbor, Bethesda Church, and Petersburg Campaigns. The combat is described in a no-holds-barred, realistic fashion, which is the trademark of the Bucktail series.
