HOW THE SOUTH Could Have Won the Civil War

with 2 comments

Today I received for review a copy of HOW THE SOUTH Could Have Won the Civil War: The Fatal Errors That Led to Confereate Defeat. Author Bevin Alexander claims to destroy the myth of the inevitability of a Union victory. I plan to read it with open mind.

I haven’t yet determined where to place this book on my virtual bookshelves so for now, it’s filed on shelf three of “Civil War Era and Commentary.”

More to come.

    1. How ironic; I received a copy of the same book. This editor is very conscious about hitting up the Civil War bloggers now isn’t he? I enjoy your blog. Keep up the good work!

    2. Thanks for the note Andrew. To your point on review copies, I have to give the publisher a nod on marketing strategy in the virtual world.

      And thanks for the compliment on the blog.
