Military history out the wazoo...

... as the entertainment industry discovers history and nonfiction readers.

Two military themed TV channels launched in the last 10 days, the Military History Channel and the Military Channel. "Both are targeting much the same audience with a similar programming mix, and are bankrolled by two of the cable TV industry's biggest and most successful players."

I hope this has a more positive effect on Civil War history than the Ken Burns series, but I'm doubtful.

Hat tip to the reader who gave me this heads up.
