Book Reviews & Awards

“an admirable job…. A great deal of information has been diligently noted, sorted, and collated from these cornerstones of Civil War literature….valuable insight of the premier army in the Eastern theater. Collins is certainly to be commended for presenting this new look, to an old topic in an attractive, well-organized format”—Blue & Gray Magazine; “the author deserves real credit for completing the thankless task that no one else has been willing to perform before now, that of compiling the OB list and data available in the OR and gathering them all together in one place for easily accessible viewing”—Civil War Books & Authors.
