Preview: Wittenberg – The Battle of Monroe’s Crossroads

8 04 2015

MONROEJacket_lgI received a few new Savas-Beatie releases, three in the Emerging Civil War series and a paperback reprint of Eric Wittenberg’s The Battle of Monroe’s Crossroads and the Civil War’s Final Campaign. Unlike Savas-Beatie sesquicentennial editions of previously published works, this is a straight reprint to paperback. So if you weren’t fortunate enough to purchase a hardcover edition (now sold out), here’s your chance to get the full contents in a format that can be tossed in your backpack if you’re lucky enough to find yourself on the battlefield (it lies within the confines of Ft. Bragg and is very tough to be granted access. I was lucky enough to tour the field with the author a few years ago.)

Thanks Harry. As to this:

“Unlike Savas-Beatie sesquicentennial editions of previously published works, this is a straight reprint to paperback,” . . . that is because we did not publish the previous editions, which were in my opinion in need of “improvement” to meet our standards. This one began and ended in our wheelhouse. :)

Understood, Ted. I have both the hardback and now this softcover, and just want to let the reader know what he/she is getting!
