First words
(Foreword) After completing in 1934 a life of General R.E. Lee, the writer began to collect material for a biography of a great American of an earlier period but found that mentally it was not easy to leave the struggle about which one had been writing for twenty years and more.
He would go at once.

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0684187485, Paperback)

When Douglas Southall Freeman's original three-volume version of Lee's Lieutenants appeared in the 1940s, it marked a high point in Civil War history, and the books were lauded not only for their scholarship but for their elegant writing. This monument of Civil War literature has been skillfully abridged by one of the most noted present-day Civil War historians, Stephen W. Sears. The new one-volume abridgement retains the core material of the original and makes Freeman's fine writing available in a much more accessible format.
