Comments: I've read the first six chapters of Reid's new Sherman biography, up through the point in the war when the general was making the transition from division to corps-level command. I like it well enough so far but obviously haven't gotten to the real meat of his Civil War career. For those who haven't read it yet, see my Tempest Over Texas preview. Nearly all the May titles I featured in the prior Coming Soon installment made it into the wild, so hopefully that will also be the case for June.

  1. Thanks for the summer preview! Savas Beatie will also be releasing "Seceding from Secession: The Civil War, Politics, and the Creation of West Virginia."

    Written by Eric J. Wittenberg, Edmund A. Sargus, and Penny L. Barrick it's an unprecedented study of the social, legal, military, and political factors that converged to bring about the birth of the West Virginia.
