Father's Day

Buying books for my father is a challenge - almost an insurmountable one. He holds a PhD in optical physics from Harvard, spent his entire career in research at IBM throughout its heyday, directing science and technology development. He has been on every national academy board, engineering or science task force, science advisory panel, held chairs or guest professorships in engineering and physics at MIT, UVA, and UMass - you name it.

In 1862, Stonewall Jackson's worldwide fame eclipsed even that of Napoleon. Just a year earlier he was an obscure professor known as "Old Jack." Less a biography than an epic history of strategic gambles and battlefield miracles, with an enigmatic hero who put as much faith in God as he did in war. ~ Reviewed by Charles Bottomley

An important side of history we hardly learn about brought to life. Abbott's accounts of four courageous spies, soldiers, and couriers read like novels and remind us that women, while scarcely accounted for, played a significant role in our nation's history. ~ Reviewed by Jess Hanlon

Think Lincoln had problems keeping the North united? Confederate leaders, always seeking to preserve their own wealth and power, continually made decisions that increasingly squandered middle and lower class citizen support for the war and eventually up went the cry: "Rich man's war, poor man's fight". A surprising and enlightening story. ~ Reviewed by Bill Lewis
