Thanks for stopping by. You are lucky you got the hardcover through the book club; that's the only place where the hardcover is available! It is a great book, and the new edition is nominated for an award by the Army Historical Foundation. You can read more about it on Eric Wittenberg's blog here: http://civilwarcavalry.com/?p=3133
Also, thought you might be interested to know that we will be re-releasing another one of Eric Wittenberg's books this year - Protecting the Flank: The Battles for Brinkerhoff’s Ridge and East Cavalry Field, July 2 - 3, 1863 (http://tinyurl.com/64yond2
Here are some of the new edition additions:
- There are several thousand words worth of new material in the main text.
- There is an additional map and additional illustrations.
- The walking/driving tours now feature GPS coordinates, which the original version did not include.
- Most importantly, there is a 6,500 word essay addressing the true purpose of J.E.B. Stuart's presence on East Cavalry Field on July 3, 1863.
I know many people will be looking forward to the Stuart section!
