New boxed set of Generals in Blue & Generals in Gray


Everyone knows about Ezra Warner's classic reference guides to Union and Confederate generals. Used hardcover copies are certainly easy to find in bookstores at low prices, however, older books of this type are almost invariably beat up to some degree or another. Thankfully, for those desiring crisp new copies, LSU Press is reprinting in April Generals in Blue & Generals in Gray as a handsome looking boxed set.

    They are really wonderful.

    A neat complement to them are Welsh's books on the Medical Histories of Union and Confederate Generals. That really adds another dimension to the officers and makes for fascinating reading.

  3. Chris, I agree completely. I keep all four together, and routinely when writing, or editing/reviewing manuscripts I reach for them and read. And then get lost in the books for an hour or so. :)
