A very insightful book that gives a thourough review of Nathan Bedford Forrest emphasizing neither the good or the bad but reporting on both. Gives an understanding of the mans life both before and after the war years.

This detailed, nuanced biography includes what Paul Harvey would call . . . THE REST OF THE STORY: Three years before his death, Nathan Bedford Forrest experienced a religious conversion, after which he became an advocate of racial reconciliation.
