Great read - well written - Enhances my understanding of the Civil War ( )
  busterrll | Sep 27, 2014 |
This book focuses on the West Point Class of 1846 which had a number of future Civil War generals in it including Stonewall Jackson, George McClellan, A.P. Hill, and George Pickett. It was incredibly interesting, yet somewhat uneven. I have never read a character study about these men and I learned a lot about who they were as men. The chapter about Jackson and Ewell (The Odd Couple) is one of the best things I've read in a long, long time. The author;s style is what was uneven. He writes very accessibly, but it seems at points to vary between a book and someone who loves history telling stories to a classroom. This is a minor quibble, but it's something I caught several times throughout. That said, it's a very unique way of looking at some major figures of the Civil War and I'm glad to have read it and can recommend it to you. ( )
