Historian Mark Bielski Receives Rave Reviews for A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy

A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy book coverRave reviews continue to come in for Historian Mark F. Bielski’s latest book, A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy: The Fall of New Orleans, 1862.

As featured on CNN, Forbes and Inc – BookAuthority identifies and rates the best books in the world, based on recommendations by thought leaders and experts. BookAuthority included A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy in its “6 Best New Civil War Confederacy Books To Read In 2022.”

S.A. Cavell of Southeastern Louisiana University recently reviewed A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy for the prestigious Journal of Southern History.

The Journal of Southern History is published four times a year, in February, May, August, and November, by the Southern Historical Association, which has its editorial offices at the Department of History, Rice University. For eighty-five years, the Journal has published the best of southern history.

As Cavell notes in his review:

“Bielski has written a heavily illustrated, approachable introduction to the subject for a general audience—an achievement by any standard. The narrative is offset by marginal notes featuring character sketches to humanize the action, and useful maps provide a visual anchor for the battle sequences, making A Mortal Blow to the Confederacy: The Fall of New Orleans, 1862 a worthwhile contribution to the literature.”
