Booknotes IV (November '09)

New additions this month:

1. Engineering Security: The Corps of Engineers and Third System Defense Policy, 1815-1861 by Mark A. Smith (Univ. of Alabama Press, 2009).

I think anyone interested in the philosophy and implementation of the Third System will want to read this one. A drawback that is immediately apparent is the inclusion of only a handful of illustrations. Those expecting detailed maps and schematics (similar to the one on the cover) will be disappointed.

2. Indiana's War: The Civil War in Documents edited by Richard F. Nation and Stephen E. Towne (Ohio Univ. Press, 2009).

3. The Maps of Chickamauga: An Atlas of the Chickamauga Campaign, Including the Tullahoma Operations, June 22 - September 23, 1863 by David A. Powell and David A. Friedrichs (Savas Beatie, 2009).
