Kudos:

 

  Congrats to Dr. Sexton for the review of his Battles & Leaders series title Signals Intelligence, which appears in the January issue of Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries. FYI, Don is the fourth Tennessee historian to publish a book in that series; upon publication of his Stalingrad work next year, Dr. Fred Kaufmann will be the fifth. For both projects, Mr. Tunstall provided significant interlibrary loan support.
