Booknotes III (Aug '13)

New Arrivals:

1. Caleb Dorsey Baer: Frederick, Maryland’s Confederate Surgeon edited by F. Terry Hambrecht, M.D. and Terry Reimer (National Museum of Civil War Medicine Press, 2013).

Jim Schmidt has a nice writeup [here] about this book on his blog Civil War Medicine. As it is a Trans-Mississippi diary and letter collection, it will certainly be reviewed here, as well.

2. The Civil War in the East: Struggle, Stalemate, and Victory by Brooks D. Simpson (Potomac Books, 2013).

A new strategic level analysis of the eastern theater.
