Update on "War Like the Thunderbolt"
Westholme publisher Bruce Franklin recently sent me the first four draft chapters of Russell Bonds's upcoming book War Like the Thunderbolt: The Battle and Burning of Atlanta. It is rather amazing that it has taken this long for a book length account of the battle to appear. Atlanta enthusiasts familiar with the research and writing prowess demonstrated by the author's first effort, Stealing the General, will no doubt be eagerly awaiting the follow up. I am close to the bottom of my review pile, so I will take a look at the chapters soon. The book also has an earlier release date than I realized, early August instead of autumn.
