Booknotes IV (March '12)

New Arrival:

* Granbury's Texas Brigade: Diehard Western Confederates by John R. Lundberg (LSU Pr, 2012).

More than just a brigade led by a guy with cool hair, the Texas Brigade of the Army of Tennessee (Granbury's from Chattanooga until his death at Franklin) forged an enviable combat record from Donelson through to the final death throes of the Confederate western army in North Carolina.  I'd offer my initial thoughts but the Post Office mangled the book and it is in my repair shop for the time being.  It was a bad week for the USPS as they badly creased my issue of B&G, as well, folding it like a newspaper.
