New book on Franklin by Knight

KNight_44742136The History Press is publishing a series of books called “Civil War: Sesquicentennial Series”. History Press just published a volume on Franklin by  James R. Knight, aptly titled “The Battle of Franklin“.

The books in this series are not known for breaking new ground when it comes to understanding or interpreting a battle. Rather, the chief value of this book is that it is short enough to allow the reader to get through it in a few hours and it exposes the reader to the bare essentials.

I always enjoy the pictures, maps and narrative layout of these books.
