General Longstreet was beloved by the Confederate Troops he commanded, but was overshadowed in later years when accusations arose of his leading an attack contrary to orders. This little book attempts to bring a little light to this man once again, with chapters of his quotes-and quotes from others about him--arranged loosely by topic. Chapters cover the art of war, the confederate and union armies, Lee & Longstreet, and more. 87 pages, softcover. 5.5" x 7".
James Longstreet was one of the most lauded and most maligned generals of the Civil War. Renowned as a courageous, clear-thinking, and efficient leader, years later he was condemned as a traitor and blamed for key losses that led to the South's surrender.
