View Full Version : Shameless Self-Promotion

Please forgive this shameless self-promotion here. I am very pleased to announce that Deeds Publishing has just released my new book: Broomsticks to Battlefields.

To paraphrase Al Nofi:
In From Broomsticks to Battlefields Bill has done something interesting. He has used Robinett’s life to throw some light upon... several aspects of the American experience and society in the mid-nineteenth century that have not yet been fully explored. Unlike many who returned to civilian life after the Civil War, Robinett pursued a career in the Regular Army. That career, however, was marred ever increasingly erratic behavior that ended in his suicide just three years after the war – the result of complex psychological problems that are carefully discussed in the book.

From Broomsticks to Battlefields gives us a little more insight into the extent to which horrors of war effect the personality and reminds us that historians and psychologists have barely begun to study the question of post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury among Civil War veterans.
