A new Saratoga study on the way

 Well, just when I’d been griping about the gaping holes in Revolutionary War historiography, some great news comes along.  Savas-Beatie is bringing out a detailed work on Saratoga.  Like SB’s Yorktown volume, this latest offering is the product of years of research in both archives and on the ground by a former National Park Service scholar. 

This is a publisher that knows how to find and nurture good, solid manuscripts.  They recently published the late Edward Cunningham’s acclaimed Shiloh dissertation, which I highly recommend.  The forthcoming Saratoga book looks to be another must-read.
