From Manassas to Appomattox: Memoirs Of The Civil War In America

Overview

General James Longstreet is one of the most controversial figures of the American Civil War.

He has been called stubborn and vain; and he has been lauded as one of the greatest tacticians of the Civil War. All agree, however, that Longstreet was not only a dependable fighter but completely devoted to Robert E. Lee, who relied on him ...

Overview

General James Longstreet is one of the most controversial figures of the American Civil War. According to some, he was partially to blame for the Confederate defeat at Gettysburg; according to others, if Lee had followed Longstreet’s advice, they would have won that battle. He has been called stubborn and vain; and he has been lauded as one of the greatest tacticians of the Civil War. All agree, however, that Longstreet was not only a dependable fighter but completely devoted to Robert E. Lee, who relied on him the most out of all his officers. He acquitted himself bravely in many of the war’s bloodiest battles, including those at Antietam, Chickamauga, and the Wilderness. And his staunchest defenders were always the men who served under him. Longstreet’s memoirs reflect the combative style of the old soldier. Their tremendous historical interest lies not only in his personal account of the progress of the Civil War, and in the many fascinating anecdotes about Lee and his officers, but in the insight they afford into the mind and character of one of the bravest and most loyal of southern generals.

    RIP OFF

    Beware of these books, Ckarles River Editors and other are giving you small portions of much larger books when after you read their description of the books you expect much much more. Barn and Nob,e should be ashamed for allow such deception to go on. At the very least the description should state the number of pages you are buying, this has eight.

    Poorly edited eBook version

    General Longstreet wrote well but the conversion of his book into an eBook is so poorly crafted that reading it is frustrating. Also, there are parts missing. The text jumps from the middle of his family history right into the midst of the first battle of Bull Run. I am back in search of another version.

    Good book recommend if you are civil war Buff

    Gen Longstreet confusing at times so much happens at once during battles. He also spends lots of time explaning is actions and defending why he did certain actions. He was a noble man but you are left with did he really do all he could when the south really needed a upfront leader. Still worth reading.
