Just finished Noe's "Perryville: This Grand Havoc of Battle" today. Speaking of OOB's, I like the way Noe added killed, wounded and missing statistics to every corps, division, brigade and regiment in his OOBs. One can see at a glance which divisons, brigades and regiments suffered most. One can also see how incomplete the statistics were, especially on the Confederate side.

This is mid-May, so this is the time of the year I start reading about the Gettysburg Campaign's early preparations. I might stick in a light fiction book first, though, because "Perryville" really was seriously sad reading. It took endurance to read the book.
