Booknotes II (March 08)

Regular rundown of book purchases or review copies received so far this month (Part 2):

Sterling Price's Lieutenants* by Richard C. Peterson, James E. McGhee, Kip A. Lindberg, and Keith I. Daleen (Two Trails Publishing, PB-2007, HB-2008). This is the long awaited reprint (with extensive addition and revision) of a Missouri reference classic. This massive tome is not to be missed. The bibliography alone is a marvel.[* - Scroll down near the bottom of the page to find the listing.]

Butcher Burbridge: Union General Stephen Burbridge and His Reign of Terror Over Kentucky by Bryan S. Bush (Acclaim Books, 2008). Hopefully, a measured approach underlies the provocative title.

  1. Outstanding book. If you have any interest in the MSG then you need this book. The amount of information is spectacular. Jim et al have done an outstanding job.

  2. Agreed in full. Also, as the edition is oversize (8.5 x 11) and 500+ pages, I would also put in a recommendation for springing for the hardcover version.
