Next Term’s Books are In! Mostly…

with 4 comments

Ah the thrill of the sound of book boxes being dropped on my front porch and then the doorbell ringing. Nothing like it!!


One of two Amazon boxes delivered today.

Just over half of my books arrived today for next term’s class, Civil War Strategy and Tactics. See related post here.

I had to put them on my bookcase where I won’t open them until after finals. Too much to do before the term ends. Torture.


Four of seven books for Civil War Strategy and Tactics

Apologies for short post. Know you’ll understand. Two papers due by Sunday and need to read the last two chapters of Holt. the-political-crisis-of-the-1850s

  1. I’m with you; I love to see a box with the famous arrow on it at my doorstep!

  2. Rene,

    I see Taken With the Flood in that stack. I know you will enjoy that one. I’ve never seen someone go into such great detail on a campaign as Harsh with that book. I’d pay good money just for his appendices alone!

  3. Brett – Good to know about the appendices. I’ve heard nothing but good things about Take With the Flood and can’t wait to get into it.
