I really liked this one. Think sci-fi Civil War. The ultimate in theme park, Civil Warfields, where thousands of reenactors play out the Civil War for keeps. From the back of the book:

On an ordinary Tuesday in November 2012, First Sergeant Matt Storey becomes another afternoon casualty during a bungled Union charge on the Confederates. It's his worst death in several months.

Spectators don't know it, but when these guys 'take a hit', the bullets are real. After every battle, implants stimulate their DNA into self-cloning repair.

...captures a future world of Civil War reenacting gone wrong--where the drive for hardcore authenticity plays out to a dreadful conclusion. (Lance J. Herdegen, author of The Men Stood Like Iron).

...the ultimate war game in a hellish blue-grey Dinsneyland where the bullets and the bleeding are real and the line between life and death ever moving. (Dennis McCann, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
