Overview

The passage of 130 years has only deepened the fascination and reverence for Confederate general Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson. He ranks today as among the half-dozen greatest soldiers that America has produced. Military academies in both hemispheres still teach his tactics. Revered by his men, respected by his foes, Jackson became seemingly invincible. When he learned of the general's fatal wound, Robert E. Lee sent his "affectionate regards," saying, "He has lost his left arm but I my right arm." Jackson's early death in 1863 was the greatest personal loss suffered by the Confederacy and one that permanently crippled the wartime South. This eagerly awaited biography is based on years of research into little-known manuscripts, unpublished letters, newspapers, and other primary sources. It offers for the first time a complete portrait - not only of Jackson the brilliant military strategist and beloved general but also of Jackson, the man of orphaned background, unyielding determination to conquer adversity, and deep religious convictions.

    Determined Orphan, Man of God, Consummate Warrior

    Always a fan of Stonewall, I borrowed this book from a friend of mine to improve my understanding of him. I couldn't have picked a more enlightening book into his life, his family, his friends and his fellow soldiers. This book grabs you and throws into 19th century Virginia with excellent insights and references. I have just purchased two hard copies of this book - one as a gift to my library for rereading and one for a cherished brother-in-law, an army captain active in today's wars. I can think of no better example of a homegrown military man to guide him. Thank you Mr. Robertson and thank you for Stonewall's Book of Maxims.

    Robertson's writing is great

    Professor Robertson's knowledge on the man I consider my "icon" in American history is unbelievable. I learned so much from this book and the knowledge that Professor Robertson was so kind to share with his readers.
