Read full description of the books:



General James Longstreet I actually knew very little about as history is not always kind to the survivors. General James Longstreet was without a doubt one of the most capable Corp Commanders who has ever served in any Army and after reading this book I think you will agree. While many in history have judged him harshly as they feel that he abandoned the South after the war in reality he simply did what had always done which was to be true to his convictions. We think of the Gallantry of Lee the boldness of Stone Wall Jackson but reading this book you learn that Longstreet was from beginning to end Lee's Old War horse and his most trusted commander through out the war.

Longstreet after the war was still a commander as he put war behind him and put in support for his old and trusted friend from his days at West Point Ulysis S. Grant.

Sadly is often the case Longstreet was a warrior and leader of men but he was not a politician and suffered because of it.

This autobiography does an absolutely excellent job of addressing the many misconstrued storys of Longstreet and shows very clearly that had his advice been heeded at Gettysburg the landscape of the country may look very different today.
