Cloyd's Mountain digital ed.
An out of print [though available on CD] title from the H.E. Howard Virginia Civil War Battles and Leaders series, Howard McManus's The Battle of Cloyds Mountain: The Virginia and Tennessee Railroad Raid April 29 - May 19, 1864 is a reasonably good history of the subject, certainly better than anything else available. With used copies few in number and always priced in the three figure range, however, it is nice to see a Kindle version has finally been released for those who just want access to the content. I corresponded with the author a few years back and he expressed no interest in reprinting the title as a physical book, so this digital edition might be the only way to obtain a copy at a reasonable price.
