No general emerged from the American Civil Was with a more glorious reputation than Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. His formidable skills, battlefield courage, soldierly austerity, his unforgettable nickname, his taciturn mysterious character, and his tragic death after perhaps his greatest battle have combined to enshrine his name with the public as emblematic of that terrible conflict. But sometimes the truth is more complicated.
Stonewall Jackson is part of a distinguished series that feature the lives of eminent military leaders who changed history in the United States and abroad. Top military historians will write concise but comprehensive biographies including the personal lives, battles, strategies, and legacies of these great generals, with the aim to provide background and insight into today’s armies and wars. These books will be of interest to the military history buff, and, thanks to fast-paced narratives and references to current affairs, they will be accessible to the general reader.
