A Third Major Award for Wynstra's "The Rashness of That Hour"

Robert Wynstra's evocative The Rashness of that Hour: Politics, Gettysburg, and the Downfall of Confederate Brigadier General Alfred Iverson (2010) has garnered its third major book award. They are as follows:

1) Bachelder-Coddington Award for the year’s best new work interpreting the Battle of Gettysburg;

2) Dr. James I. Robertson Literary Prize for Confederate History Award; and now . . .

3) Gettysburg Round Table's Distinguished Book Award.

If you have not yet read Wynstra's first Civil War offering--which is perhaps best described as part battle history, part unit history, and part memory study, I highly recommend it.

This is one of the best books I have ever read about the Civil War. I was worried a bit at first thinking it would be so narrow as to lose my interest, but I learned a lot. Really had no idea how political it was inside Lee's army (you always hear that about the AOP). Seriously outstanding study and it deserves any and all awards.
