CSS Appomattox

The CSS Appomattox is a work of alternative history fiction. In October 1862, the Confederacy is recognized by both France and Great Britain. Lincoln opens peace negotiations that effectively ended the American Civil War. Decades later, the young Confederacy forges an alliance with Spain – a fading empire desperately clinging to its remaining Caribbean colonies. The Confederate Military assigns the young crew of the airship CSS Appomattox to assist their country’s new ally. The Appomattox is despatched with a token Naval force to Puerto Rico. Here they will stand against the coming threat of an expansionist German Empire and its ally, the United States.
This is the first book in the Thomas Devareaux series.

The Last Airship From Khartoum

Devareaux's command is being hunted. He must battle traitors at home before being sent on a goodwill mission to secure favor with their ally Great Britain. Now promoted and in command of a squadron of airships, Devareaux and his men must fight against not only hordes of enemies but the perceptions of his allies as well. Drawn across the sweeping drama of the fall of Khartoum to the forces of the Mahdi, Devareaux must try to convince General Gordon that his position is untenable and help the man escape before they miss the Last Airship out of Khartoum.

Sharpsburg Suntrise

Before Thomas Devareaux ever set foot on the deck of his airship, his father fought in the defining moment of Confederate history, the battle of Sharpsburg. As the surviving officer of a company in the 3rd South Carolina Regiment, he leads his company into battle while the fate of the Civil War hangs in the balance.
This is the prequel to the Thomas Devareaux Alternative History Military Adventure Series. It follows the adventures of James Devareaux as he becomes the leader of a veteran company of Confederate soldiers during the Battle of Sharpsburg which was known as Antietam in the North.
James Devareaux is not the catalyst for the moments that will change history but he is an eye witness to the battlefield friction that results in a different outcome than our present timeline. The cast of characters includes the officers who were present at the battle of Antietam. The Appendix lists the historical liberties that were taken with the battle to lead to a Confederate victory.
If you enjoyed the books of the Thomas Devareaux series, check out the prequel that made it all possible.
The story is just over 13,000 words in length.
This book is available from a number of online retailers. Check out the book's Universal Book Link here.:
