More Generals in Gray is "a splendid book," "indispensible"

Historian Robert K. Krick

"Ezra Warner's Generals in Gray has stood for more than a generation as an indispensable reference work on the Confederate high command. Bruce S. Allardice has produced a book that stands as a worthy sequel to Warner's. All students of the Confederate military effort should add More Generals in Gray to their collection--and also should give thanks to Allardice for the painstaking research that went into the creation of this impressive tome."

Professor Gary W. Gallagher

Confederate Colonels is "a must-have book" by "absolutely one of the finest researchers in the field"

Historian Ed Cotham
