About the Author
James Longstreet (1821 1904) was one of the foremost Confederate generals of the American Civil War and the principal subordinate to General Robert E. Lee, who called him his "Old War Horse." He also enjoyed a successful post-war career working for the U.S. Government as a diplomat, civil servant, and administrator. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

For the student of the Civil War there could be no better overview from someone who was there. With Longstreet's service in all of the major Virginia campaigns and his service at Chickamauga, Chattanooga, and Knoxville in the west the reader can glimpse both major Confederate armies and gain a deep insight into Lee's army.
The writing is a little dry at times but is as clear and well writen as can be expected. After all Longstreet was a general not a scholar. This book is a must in any complete Civil War library.
by James Longstreet is outstanding history. Written by General Lee's righthand man.
To read the thoughts and reasond for many actions of this historical person was really wonderful. It is also a great read! I could not put the book down.
It reads as the memoirs of a gentleman soldier, someone from an other era, who had to make choices and did his best.
If you have seen the 4-hour Plus film 'Gettysburg' then this book cross-referernces very well and could have been a source for that film, so many of the 'reference' - including criticism of Lee for the 'Pickets charge' - ring true.
A good historical 'source' and not remotely dusty or dull.
Must try harder, hence the four stars.
