Editorial Reviews

Civil War News
Robert E. Lee:A Life Protrait is a fresh look at the images of this fascinating individual. Eicher's writing style is fluid and captivatingand it holds your interest throughout the book. For the Lee fan, the Confederate reader, and the Civial War buff in general, this presentation of the imagery of Robert E. Lee is unsurpassed. This volume is highly recommended.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
In presenting a new biography of the great Civil War general, Eicher (Civil War Battlefields) approaches a complex subject carefully. Following his surrender at Appomattox to Ulysses S. Grant, Lee became a Southern icon, lauded by his contemporaries, friend and foe. In recent years, however, Lee's pure image has come under increasing scrutiny by a number of scholars, leading to a score of revisionist interpretations of Lee the general. Eicher has written a biography aimed toward the general reader who wants an overview of Lee without getting bogged down in too much detail or controversy. He points out Lee's genius, but also his shortcomings and mistakes as commander of the Army of Northern Virginia, and he concludes with a survey of how some Confederate generals built Lee's reputation after his death in 1870 into the most important symbol of the Lost Cause. Accompanying the text are 375 illustrations. These include 169 images of the generalphotographs, engravings, and paintingsas well as 206 images showing his contemporaries, battlefields, documents important to the Lee story and more. Appendices include a concise summary of Lee's military service, a comprehensive Lee genealogy and an annotated list of his famous relatives, staff and five war horses. This well-written, richly illustrated book is sure to become a favorite of Civil War buffs. (Sept.)

    Great Christmas gift for Dad

    My 80 year old Dad went to Gettysburg this year. He wanted to learn more about Robert E. Lee. This book is wonderful. It has all the pictures he loves and the type is large enough for him to read comfortably. It is very well written and easy to follow. I know he will love it. The other reviews helped me to decide to purchase this book. Thanks so much.
