Entrusting your battle plan to Beauregard is like a box of choc-o-lates
Novelist-history writer Winston Groom is taking on another great western battle with Shiloh, 1862: The First Great and Terrible Battle of the Civil War (National Geographic, Mar 2012). If the early details are correct, it's a big one at over 500 pages. I haven't read any of his Civil War books, and a quick thumb through his Vicksburg book didn't induce me to try, so I'll probably wait for Cozzens. Presumably, Peter will try to get his out for the 150th as well, but I have no idea.
