I wanted you to know that your recent column in the Inquirer is one of the absolute best articles dealing with the subject of character and ethics in sports that I've ever read. I'm now a big fan, and I'll try to pick up a couple of your books.
Recent E-mail comment concerning Battle of Brandywine book: "Dear Mr. Mowday, I have just put down your book, September 11..., having read it in two sittings, and I am compelled to congratulate you on writing such an inspired account of the battle, its contextual place within the political and social climate, and it's impact on the war. ... It is a rare find to read a book that organizes verified research within an intelligent narrative; it inspires my imagination and engenders an even deeper respect for the subject. Thank you for your effort, conviction, and talent. You have brought much happiness, satisfaction, and encouragement to my life. While that may sound a bit dramatic -- and it is -- it remains nonetheless true and I would be forever remiss to have not offered my appreciation."
