Stones River 1862-63 was a key battle in the west, especially in light of the Union defeat at Fredericksburg earlier that year. Some of the most important commanders and units in the west fought there. It also started a chain of events that eventually led to the battles of Chickamauga and Chattanooga, which Osprey has covered. Meanwhile, Stones River is infamous for having the highest proportional casualities on either side. I think it deserves a dedicated campaign title. What do you all think?

Odd isn't it? A few years ago Osprey were churning out 2 or 3 AWI titles every year, but recently they have dried up completely. Serves me right for grumbling about it probably, and now we get nothing but WW2.

So yes, I'd be very likely to buy a Campaign on Stones River. But even more than that I would like ANYTHING on the Mexican-American War.

Ditto here.  Been to Stones River myself.  They just wanted to give everyone a cool down before hitting us with the Gettysburg 3-parter.  They've also avoided Cold Harbor and Mobile Bay.

YES on the Mexican War!  It's been my cause du jour around here for a couple years now.  Unfortunately I see it as unlikely in 2023 given the Gettysburg 3-parter.  Too much 1800s US for you guys across the pond to handle.

Morning all,

Yes, I agree that Stones River is a big gap in Osprey's ACW coverage along with the aformentioned Mobile Bay and Cold Harbour. They've also not touched on the 1863 fighting for Charleston either (1st Charleston Harbor, 1st Fort Wagner, Grimball’s Landing, 2nd Fort Wagner, 2nd Charleston, Fort Sumter). I'd probably also throw in Red River and Corinth as well. 

As far as the Mexican-American war is concerned I'd love to see them do a Campaign on that conflict. Again it's certainly a gap in their coverage and one I'm surprised hasnt been done by now.
