Hennessy's FBR reprint

In the fall, Stackpole will be reprinting a paperback edition of John Hennessy's The First Battle of Manassas: An End to Innocence, July 18-21, 1861. Those most interested in the battle already own a copy of the H.E. Howard series volume in blue cloth so the main source of curiosity surrounding the new edition will be the question of whether it's a revised and/or expanded book or just a straight reprint. The online listing at the link provided here has little in the way of information but the page count (if it's accurate) is almost thirty pages higher in the new edition, something that may or may not mean anything given differences in layout and text formatting. I'll keep an eye on it.
