                      • I started reading this one last night:



                        It's a page turner, and I swallowed the whole of Part I in just my under-the-covers reading. I'll read the rest over the weekend, I'm sure.

                        No spoilers, but what Thomas does is this: he says Stonewall Jackson still gets shot at Chancellorsville, still loses an arm, and spends the summer recuperating. Thus, he misses Gettysburg.

                        However, that means he is there for the Bristoe Campaign in the autumn. So instead of Lee having A.P. Hill and Ewell, he has Jackson and Ewell. No major spoilers, but Lee and Jackson score another big win on the AotP, and when Bragg resigns after Chattanooga, Jackson is promoted to replace him.

                              • Ordered directly from our own Eric Wittenberg and he was kind enough to include a signing. And a very good read I might add.



                                On a personal note, it's the first book I've ever had signed by the author. Very nice of Eric to do so.
