Sokolosky and Smith's Wise's Forks

A correspondent recently asked me if I knew anything about the state of one of Wade Sokolosky and Mark Smith's current projects, a history of the March 1865 Battle of Wise’s [for some reason, I prefer Wyse] Forks. Going straight to the source, I found this February announcement on their website:
"Savas-Beatie Publishing Co. has agreed to publish the Wise's Forks book. This is a prayer that's been answered, and I look forward to working with them as we bring this project to closure. Our deadline to Savas-Beatie is June 2014. This ensures release at the beginning of 2015. Mark Moore has agreed to handling the maps for Wise's Forks. Mark is an excellent map-maker and extremely knowledgeable of the Carolinas Campaign."
There's no such thing as a sure date this far out from planned release, but it's great to hear the work is nearing completion. I loved their earlier collaboration, 2005's No Such Army..., and can't wait to get my hands on this one.

  1. We are very looking forward to publishing their Wyse's (Wise's) Fork manuscript. First, though, is the reprint (a complete revision and redesign) of their outstanding and now out of print "No Such Army Since the Days of Julius Caesar: Sherman's Carolinas Campaign from Fayetteville to Averasboro (2006, Ironclad). We don't have a firm date yet, but we anticipate very early spring 2015. Onward.
