My apologies to my readers for the lack of posting the past couple of weeks. Two things have been demanding my attention lately (well, beside that dang thing – work – that keeps getting in my way! First, One Continuous Fight is going into its second edition as we speak, and I’ve been doing some work on fixing some typos and other small revisions that needed to be done before it goes to the printer. Secondly, I’m currently working on the final touches for my new book, set for release in mid-May 2009 and also published by Savas Beatie. I will be revealing details about this book as time goes on and we get closer to release date. I’m very excited about this project, and it’s a work I have been wanting to do for many years.
In the meantime, today a wonderful review of One Continuous Fight appeared on the book’s Amazon page, and I, Eric, and Mike are very humbled and appreciative of it. It’s by Richard N. Larsen and we couldn’t be happier by such kind words:
This truly is a work of epic proportions
September 12, 2008By Midwest Book Review
If you ever wondered what happened to Robert E. Lee’s army of northern Virginia in the ten days following its defeat at Gettysburg on Pennsylvania July 3, 1863, look no further than One Continuous Fight. Herein, Jeb Stuart is redeemed in the eyes of Lee for poor scouting reports prior to July 1st. Meade explains why he didn’t intercept Lee’s broken army during the retreat. Learn of the twenty or so skirmishes between Southern and Northern cavalry in places like Funkstown, Boonsboro and finally Falling Waters, suffer with the slow moving, 17 mile long Confederate wagon train carrying the wounded and the lame, including captured union soldiers for ten days from Gettysburg to Williamsport, Maryland.
Never before have I seen such broad range of resources, from diaries to documents, letters, newspaper accounts, military, civilians along the route of retreat, Confederate and Union.
This truly is work of epic proportions, taken on by three well known Civil War historians and experts on cavalry action. There is even a detailed modern driving tour for those of you who can still afford gasoline, from Gettysburg, Pennsylvania to Williamsport, Maryland.
