Who are your favorites?
I've read all of catton's and some footes but find the newer author's splendid reading.
Stephen Sears has to be my favorite.I've read"Landscape turned red"3 times.His book on the peninsular campaign 3 times also.
Chancellorville and gettysburg twice.Very"readable"informative yet they flow well.
Winston Groom is also excellent.Have read his "Vicksburg"and have his Shilo on order from Bomc2.
Did'nt know he wrote Forrest Gump till I read a review on Vicksburg.All the mentioned books highly recommended.
