The Final Battle is a love story set in the middle of a raging war between the Confederate
States of America and The United States of America. It is the story of John Tucker, a
Southern plantation owner, and three women who love him. They are thrust into a violent
conflict, with an enemy hell bent not only on destroying the Confederate Army, but also on
murdering, raping, and pillaging the loyal and determined citizens of the South.
Unfortunately, historians are usually heavily influenced by the victor's point of view, so most
of the modern literature portraying the war presents an unbalanced picture. This book looks at
the conflict through the eyes of a Southern plantation owner who loses everything in an ordeal
fought between unequal brothers. It is a poignant story of love, of fighting for one's
homeland, of struggling against a ruthless foe, of courage, of despair, and of renewal in the
face of defeat.

It tells of John Tucker's love for his land and his way of life. However, The Final Battle is not
fought between opposing armies, but rather is a battle for the love of John Tucker.

"I cannot begin to tell you how long it has been since I read such a great love story. I think it
was written in such a way that every southern girl and or boy would enjoy reading, and maybe
even fall in love themself. In some parts of the book it seems as though I was glad, mad and
sad all at the same time.This is why it kept my attention and I did not want to put the book
down. I honestly and truefully fell in love with John Tucker. He was just 'the' character that
every reader falls in love with. It would be great if someone would take it upon themself to
make a movie from it. I would go out and see it today. Again, the book was just very good
