Robert E. Lee, Paperback / softback Book

Robert E. Lee Paperback / softback

Illustrated by Adam Hook

Part of the Command series



Beloved by his soldiers and respected by his enemies, Robert E.

Lee is undoubtedly the most popular general in American history to fight on the losing side.

This book takes an in-depth look at this southern gentleman as a strategist and a tactician, covering all of his most important victories and defeats.

Although courted by Lincoln, Robert E. Lee could not fight against his native Virginia and joined the Confederacy.

After assuming command of the Army of Northern Virginia, Lee ran off a string of shocking victories that left the North reeling.

However, on two separate occasions, Lee led invasions into the North and both ended in defeat, first at Antietam and then at Gettysburg.

Encompassing the huge body of research surrounding General Lee and presenting it with numerous photographs and newly commissioned artwork, this book provides a complete understanding of Lee as a battlefield commander.
