by Edward Aronoff

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
The story of America’s most difficult period, as told through the eyes of the man who lead a rebellion. This is the memoir General Lee always intended to write. His friends and colleagues urged him to write about his experiences, and finally with the backing of Harper’s Weekly, Robert E. Lee began the arduous task of reliving his command. Sadly, the great General died before he could complete the project. With historic facts and figures, Edward Aronoff has “ghost written” a book that the General would be proud to call his own. Battle by battle, each conflict is carefully recounted along with Lee’s personal thoughts on the valor of his troops, his brave and often misguided generals, and his overwhelming opponents in the Army of the Potomac. This book is a must read for any Civil War buff or American history enthusiast.
