Description
Though traditionally saddled with much of the blame for the Confederate loss at Gettysburg, General James Longstreet was actually a capable, resourceful, and brave commander, argues Alexander Mendoza. In this history, Mendoza offers a comprehensive analysis of Longstreet's leadership during his seven-month assignment in the Tennessee theater of operations, concluding that the obstacles to effective command faced by Longstreet had at least as much to do with longstanding grievances and politically motivated prejudices as they did with any of the general's own personal or military shortcomings.

"Using a wealth of primary and secondary sources, [Mendoza] lifts the veil of negativity that has settled over Longstreet's legacy through the decades.... [The book] also offers an interesting glimpse into the dynamics of the Confederate command structure in the West and the ebb and flow of Confederate military politics."—Trudy Eden
