Comments: I've talked about several of these before. Though their official release dates are in December, copies of the Kutzler and Brown books have already arrived. There is a new contributor to the "Critical Decisions" series, and I will also be interested to read Davis's take on Hood.


  1. Happy Post Thanksgiving, Drew.

    1. "Caught in the Maelstrom: The Indian Nations in the Civil War, 1861-1865," by Clint Crowe, ships from the printer in 10 days.

    2. "Lincoln Takes Command: The Campaign to Seize Norfolk and the Destruction of the CSS Virginia," by Steven Norder ships a few days after Crowe. I am always excited about all our books, but this one has evolved to become one of my personal favorites because I think it is especially interesting, cuts a lot of new ground, and joint operations and ironclads fascinate me. It is also a book club selection and they doubled their order recently after reading the final galley.

    3. After some fits and starts, "America’s Buried History: Landmines in the Civil War," by Kenneth Rutherford, goes to the printer in about 10 days. Barnes and Noble wanted a different cover, and we are finalizing now. Author Ken R. was personal friend of Princess Di and her sons, and pushed a global campaign against landmines that won a Nobel Peace Prize. He lost both his legs in Somalia to a landmine in the early 1990s. He is a hell of a guy. Pub date third week of January. Good and interesting book.

    Now I am going to find some leftover turkey, cranberry sauce, and rolls for breakfast. Oh, and mashed potatoes. And gravy. And perhaps some pie.

    1. Thanks for the update. Sounds like we should see Maelstrom by the end of Dec. and the Norder book by early to mid Jan.
