- May 31, 2001Glad you found it interesting; too bad Upton didnt go to the West
during the CW (I don't believe he did, that is), so we could talk
about him more! Thanks for the bit on Frederick the Great. As for
Forrest, BTW, I am going to try to re-read some books I have on him,
but am not sure I have anything that talks in detail or specifics
about what innovative ideas he might have had. A BATTLE FROM THE START
, by Wills, is the best book I have found on the subject.
