Booknotes VI (March '12)

New Arrival:

The CSS Virginia: Sink Before Surrender by John V. Quarstein (The History Pr, 2012).

Quarstein has written a number of books about the sea and land Civil War on the eastern stretch of the Virginia Peninsula, the most recent a short history of the Big Bethel battle. This large book (nearly 600 pages) offers much in the way of detail about the crew and career of the CSS Virginia, not the least of which is an extensive roster.
