"The book is well balanced, giving due attention to Lee's life before and after the American Civil War, but it is his position as Commander of the Army of Northern Virginia that deservedly receives the main focus. In his analysis of Lee's military operations, the author provides objectivity in interpretation and conclusions and insightful perception into Lee's sterling character and inner mind. The accompanying illustrations, maps and photographs are artfully presented and greatly enhance the reader's enjoyment and understanding of the life and military campaigns of this great commander... The author, illustrator and Osprey Publishing are to be congratulated." --Ron Stowers, Jackson Civil War Roundtable "Offers letters, newspapers, and diaries to build a fine narrative of Lee's achievements. From his legendary career to his tragedies, Robert E. Lee is a fine introduction for any military or general-interest holding." --The Midwest Book Review (December 2010) "A superb book about one of history's finest." --Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness
