Good news and bad news from Savas Beatie

Savas Beatie's new book Shiloh and the Western Campaign of 1862 shipped yesterday.

This has quite a story behind it, being a never-published thesis powerful enough to influence a generation of revisionist historians. The author (Edward Cunningham) is/remains deceased (+1997), which underscores the power of the manuscript he authored.

Long-dead author, unpublished ms and yet great influence. Impressive.

The introduction to this work is a wonderful piece of historiography and I hope Ted Savas makes it available on his site (in the style of Amazon's "Look Inside" links).

This good news is accompanied by word that Russel Beatie's Army of the Potomac Vol. 3 is just now going to press after a delay. Patience. It will be worth it.
