Short Takes

In the mail today was a copy of James W. Parrish’s Wiregrass to Appomattox, a history of the 50th Georgia. I blurbed the book after looking at a draft and will see how it all comes together, then write a review. It’s published by Angle Valley Press, which also did a very well-received history of the 35th Georgia.

$39.95, 6 x 9 hardback, 420 pages, 28 maps, 100+ photos, soldiers’ roster, end notes, bibliography and index.

Amazon.com has sent out a notification that Gary Gallagher’s Chancellorsville: The Battle and Its Aftermath, is due to be released on January 8 and can be pre-ordered for $13.57, a savings of $6.38 on the list price.

On a slightly different note, I ordered a copy of Matthew Spring’s With Zeal and Bayonets Only: The British Army on Campaign in North America, 1775-1783. It promises to be “a new analysis of the British Army during the “American rebellion” at both operational and tactical levels.” I did a recent post looking into something similar, so it’ll be interesting to see what Spring says. It’s 20% off for the rest of the year.
