  • From That Terrible Fieldby James M. Williams; John Kent Folmar

    University of Alabama Press 2010; US$ 24.95

    “The well-written and candid letters of a reasonably articulate Southern officer, who paints a lucid picture of everyday life in the Confederate army in a little-known theater… Williams’s letters, personally written and shot through with his sharp sense of humor and folksy artwork, provide an excellent account of a long neglected... more...

  • The Massachusetts Andrew Sharpshootersby Alden C. Ellis

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 40.00

    Named for Massachusetts governor John Albion Andrew--who prevented these two companies from joining the nationalized Berdan's sharp-shooters so that their families could continue to receive state aid--the Andrew Sharpshooters often transferred from unit to unit as the need for their unique, long-range shooting skills changed. This first chronicle... more...

  • The Civil War in Kentuckyby Lowell H. Harrison

    The University Press of Kentucky 2010; US$ 16.00

    " The Civil War scene in Kentucky, site of few full-scale battles, was one of crossroad skirmishes and guerrilla terror, of quick incursions against specific targets and equally quick withdrawals. Yet Kentucky was crucial to the military strategy of the war. For either side, a Kentucky held secure against the adversary would have meant easing of supply... more...

  • Granbury's Texas Brigadeby John R. Lundberg

    LSU Press 2012; US$ 25.95

    John R. Lundberg?s compelling new military history chronicles the evolution of Granbury?s Texas Brigade, perhaps the most distinguished combat unit in the Confederate Army of Tennessee. Named for its commanding officer, Brigadier General Hiram B. Granbury, the brigade fought tenaciously in the western theater even after Confederate defeat seemed certain.... more...

  • Germans in the Civil Warby Walter D. Kamphoefner; Wolfgang Helbich; Susan Carter Vogel

    The University of North Carolina Press 2006; US$ 40.00

    German Americans were one of the largest immigrant groups in the Civil War era, and they comprised nearly 10 percent of all Union troops. Yet little attention has been paid to their daily lives?both on the battlefield and on the home front?during the war. This collection of letters, written by German immigrants to friends and family back home, provides... more...

  • Cape Fear Confederatesby James Gillispie

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 35.00

    The 18th North Carolina Regiment has the dubious distinction of firing the volley at Chancellorsville, Virginia, that mortally wounded General Thomas "Stonewall" Jackson. This tragic accident has overshadowed the regiment's otherwise valiant service during the Civil War. One of Robert E. Lee's "fighting regiments," the 18th... more...

  • Artillery and Trench Mortar Memories - 32nd Divisionby Ed R. Whinyates

    Andrews UK 2012; US$ 26.49

    This book is a compilation of Diaries and Trench Mortar Memories contributed by various members of the 32nd Divisional Artillery, and apart from anything else it goes some way to make up for the lack of a full divisional history. The 32nd Division landed in France in November 1915 without its artillery which had been transferred to the 31st Division.... more...

  • Ulysses S. Grant: A Victor, Not a Butcherby Edward H. III Bonekemper

    Regnery Publishing 2010; US$ 16.95

    Ulysses S. Grant is often accused of being a cold?hearted butcher of his troops. In Ulysses S. Grant: A Victor, Not a Butcher , historian Edward H. Bonekemper III proves that Grant?s casualty rates actually compared favorably with those of other Civil War generals. His perseverance, decisiveness, moral courage, and political acumen place him among... more...

  • The Tenth Minnesota Volunteers, 1862–1865by Michael A. Eggleston

    McFarland & Company, Inc., Publishers 2012; US$ 40.00

    The Civil War experience of the 10th Minnesota Volunteer Regiment resembles that of few other regiments. On the day the 10th Minnesota first mustered at Fort Snelling in August 1862, the Sioux Indian War broke out in western Minnesota. Soldiers who signed up to fight the Confederacy instead found themselves marching to defend the frontier and spending... more...
