Praise For General James Longstreet: The Confederacy's Most Controversial Soldier…
The New York Times Book Review
For those who cut their teeth on such historians as Douglas Southall Freeman and Bruce Catton, General James Longstreet provides insights and viewpoints well worth the time and effort to read it.
Stephen B. Oates
author of Abraham Lincoln: The Man Behind the Myths
A brilliant, provocative, riveting life, so much so that I found it impossible to put down. If I had to recommend just one biography of a Confederate military figure, this would be it.
The Philadelphia Inquirer
The best biography to date on this controversial soldier's life: thoroughly researched, fair and totally convincing.
A solid and richly detailed piece of military history. It casts strong light on a talented, complex and fascinating figure.
The Washington Times
A "must read" for Civil War buffs.
John J. Hennessy
author of Return to Bull Run
This provocative, well-written study should stand in the front rank of Confederate military biography.
author of Decision in the West: The Atlanta Campaign of 1864
By far the best biography yet to be written of Lee's "old war horse."
Alan T. Nolan
author of Lee Considered: General Robert E. Lee and Civil War History
Jeffry D. Wert gives us a historian's view of the general....[An] excellent addition to Civil War literature.
