More History Press titles
Eric Wittenberg recently posted news about his upcoming Brandy Station book, which will be part of The History Press's Civil War Sesquicentennial series. Two of the brand new releases interest me, Michael D. Coker's The Battle of Port Royal and The Battle of Okolona: Defending the Mississippi Prairie by Brandon H. Beck. Both cover battles that have never received adequate book length coverage before. From those that I've read, I like the series overall. The chosen format lends itself well to shorter subjects, and the series as a whole has a nice variety in its addressing of new and familiar material.
