Lee's Lieutenants

by Douglas Southall Freeman

Book review

Freeman was not a professional scholar, and this makes this work and his biography of Lee that much more impressive.It was a fascinating read into the personalities of Lee's main subordinates, especially the young Sandie Pendelton.Freeman clearly mastered his sources in an age where you had to physically travel to examine documentary sources.It's clear that Freeman is a Lee partisan, but this in no way detracts from the scope or quality of the work.It's meant to be a study of command: methods, techniques, personalities.As a professional soldier, I took away quite a few lessons from this work.Timeless.
