Our book recommendation for this episode is “Pea Ridge: Civil War Campaign in the West” by William L. Shea and Earl J. Hess.

“Offers the rich tactical detail, maps, and order of battle that military scholars love but retains a very readable style combined with liberal use of recollections of the troops and leaders involved.” ~ Library Journal
