It's unfortunate that history has been so unkind to NBF. His loose ties to the KKK in its early days have overshadowed his true military genius. Read this book to find out about the man, and then make a judgement. Can't wait to read some newer books with more recently discovered information!

Great biography that follows the life and times of a misunderstood patriot and warrior. Highly recommended.

This book is well written and uses writtings from several of Forrest's men. This book has become the definitive souce for anyone researching Bedford Forrest. The only shortcomings are that this book was written some time ago and there is newer information that is not included. Check the bibliography of any book on this man and this book will be listed there.
