I managed to get my hands on a copy of the currently out-of-print 42nd Virginia Infantry by John Chapla. The book is part of the Virginia Regimental History series of books published by H.E. Howard. I have a very short review of the book on my ACW Books site in the Unit Histories and Miscellaneous books section of the Eastern Theater. I haven’t had the chance to read any of these regimental histories before, so I do not know if this book was typical of the series. The maps left something to be desired. However, wargamers will appreciate the numerous Present for Duty numbers available through the course of the book.
