Not the best book from a historian's point of view: Not many primary sources are referenced (like the Official Records); instead, other historian's works are cited. It begins with a relevant premise -- answering the claims of Lee revisionists -- and makes some interesting points. But going forward, it becomes just a brief biography, relevant to newcomers like me, but of minimal use to a seasoned veteran of Civil War and Robert E. Lee information.
