not yet rated|write a review
The passage of one hundred and thirty years has failed to temper the fascination and respect for Confederate General Thomas Jonathan Jackson -- "Stonewall". He ranks today as among the half-dozen greatest soldiers that America has produced and his tactics are studied in military academies across the Western world. This major new biography reveals not only Jackson the brilliant military strategist, but also Jackson the man of humble beginnings, eccentricities, and deep religious conviction. Based on years of unprecedented detailed research into manuscripts, newspapers, and other primary sources, Robertson has not presented a military chronicle of a famous general, but rather the extraordinary life of a man who became a famous general.
-- This is the most comprehensive and deeply researched biography of Stonewall Jackson published this century
-- Exhaustive research illuminates a multitude of new revelations
-- Illustrations include a previously unpublished photograph of Jackson
-- Easy-to-understand maps complement every major military campaign
-- This book will be a "must have" for Civil War buffs and American history enthusiasts
