“One Continuous Fight” to the bookclubs and a second edition

As our publisher Ted Savas posted today, One Continuous Fight: The Retreat From Gettysburg and the Pursuit of Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia, July 4-14, 1863 by Eric Wittenberg, Mike Nugent and myself has just gone into a second edition.  60% of the second print run, as Ted reports, has already been sold through current in-house, Amazon, and other distribution orders.  We’ve been very humbled and appreciative of the success and reception of this book.

Both the History Book Club and Military Book Club have chosen it as an alternate selection.  A few days ago buddy Steve Basic sent me a copy of the club’s newsletters, and there was a great two-page spread on the book in it.   It is quite prestigious indeed to be selected by them and we’re very grateful for it.

Thanks to everyone again for all the kind words about the book and for the positive reception it has been getting.  I have heard from many folks who have taken advantage of the driving tours in the back of the book, and their enjoyment of them has truly been the most rewarding of all.
