TOCWOC Influential Civil War Book Contest

At The Order of Civil War Obsessively Compulsed blog, Brett Schulte just announced a new contest. He’s giving away a copy of Roll Call to Destiny by Brent Nosworthy to a worthy submission to the blog. The blog must answer the questions:

What are the five most important books you have read on the Civil War? Why is each important?

Brett lists some additional rules and stipulations in the post.

Good idea for a topic thread. But the deadline is August 15, just a month away.
