The Bloody Crucible of Courage: 'Fighting Methods and Combat Experience of the Civil War, by Brent Nosworthy. A good number of new tidbits of information to help flesh some things out, but no earthshaking revalations so far.

I was reading "The Witches: Salem 1692," during the holidays! Ho, ho, ho!

Dennis

I didn't care for it-too many errors, especially regarding period artillery.

His other two books also suffer from too many errors.

Good to know. I did like the analysis of the development of some weapons and tactics from European models. Many of the stories and anecdotes from soldiers were new to me as well.

Read Cherow's Grant, excellent, but a few minor oversimplifications. For example, Grant and Rosey at Corinth.

Currently reading two books:

Such Troops as These about the military genius of Stonewall Jackson.

Also

The Statesman and the Storyteller, a dual biography of John Hay and Mark Twain.

Both quite good so far.

Fighting for the Confederacy. The Personal Recollections of General Edward porter Alexander.
Saw a review of it online and had to order. Have only read Chapter 1 early years and so far not to pleased. There was whole lot of rambling and name dropping of all the people he ever dealt with. Sure hope it gets better.

In a way he doesn’t but mainly because his book is part of a 6 volume series on the history of the South. That was the timeframe he was given.
