There's an interesting supplemental volume to Ezra Warner's "Generals in Gray" aptly titled "More Generals in Gray" by Bruce S. Allardice. Just saw some $11.00 used copies on Amazon. The generals contained therein were those men whose promotion papers were lost but there was sufficient evidence to go ahead with the promotion, promoted after certain deadlines of the Confederate Congress and other such strange vagaries of paperwork, legislation, and skewed standard operating procedures. A surprisingly large number of generals got to that rank in strange ways. Enjoy!
