Overview

"This abridgment…is still the best one-volume biography of Lee."
Chicago Tribune

"Lee provides an opportunity for a new generation to better understand not only the Civil War era but also the art of biography."
Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"The most prominent of…Civil War offerings. Considered the definitive work on the commander of the Confederate forces."
The Pittsburgh Press

When Douglas Southall Freeman's Pulitzer Prize-winning biography R. E. Lee appeared in 1935, the critics raved. Stephen Vincent Benét summed it all up by saying, "there is a monument—and a fine one—to Robert E. Lee at Lexington. But this one, I think, will last as long." This reissue of Richard Harwell's 1961 abridgment chronicles all the major apsects and highlights of Lee's military career, and includes a new introduction by James M. McPherson, author of the bestselling Battle Cry of Freedom. Distinguised, scholarly, yet eminently readeable, Lee will fascinate not only Civil War enthusiasts but also everyone interested in this crucial period of American history.

    One of the Best Biographies I have ever read

    This is simply an amazing book. The original biography is 4 volumes long and in this book it is condensed into 1, and in my opinion without losing any detail or flavor of the original. Simply an amazing read.

    Freeman is the authority on RE Lee

    Outstanding biography! This is for the serious scholar who wants to know the details about one of history's most facinating figures. Look in the bibliography section of any Lee bio and chances are you will see reference to Freeman's 'Lee'. Rightly so. He is a two-time Pulitzer Prize winning author. Freeman's strength is in the details and the way he uses Lee's own words as well as his contemporaries throughout the book. The best book about Lee without a doubt.
