Each December we have quite an excellent discussion of all areas of Civil War books especially for Christmas. I have found many great recommendations during that time, and we are near there if it is again ok with our esteemed moderators this year.

Dear Bill, Ken, Bob, Tom and Steve:
I'm the author of Stealing the General, and I recently discovered
your group here. Thanks, Bill, for mentioning the book, and to all
of you who have ordered it. Please post here or send me an e-mail at
rbonds@.... com and let me know if you enjoy the book.
I'm a lifelong Georgia resident--I grew up almost literally in the
shadow of Kennesaw Mountain--and like all of you am a student of the
war in the (still overlooked) West. Also, I'm considering a number
of ideas for my next book topic. If any of you have a thought on a
Civil War story, battle or character that deserves more attention or
a new narrative treatment, please let me know.
Thanks again; I look forward to participating in the group.
Got my copy of the book last week, and I look forward to reading it. If you are interested, we do have a CW chat room, and we do have book chats on CW books. When a book is chosen, we "assign" homework, as in a few chapters to read each week for the discussion. The topic of your book is quite a popular one for many who visit there, and am sure those involved would enjoy a chat on this event of the Civil War.
If this is something you wish to participate in, please let me or my fellow moderator ks know, and we will schedule a discussion on the book accordingly.
Best of luck with the book, and welcome aboard! :)
Regards from the Garden State,
