When Douglas Southall Freeman’s Pulitzer Prize-winning biography R.E. Lee appeared in 1935, the critics raved. Stephen Vincent Benet summed it up by saying, “there is a monument- and a fine one- to Robert E. Lee at Lexington. But this one, I think, will last as long.” This reissue of Richard Harwell’s 1961 abridgment chronicles all the major aspects and highlights of Lee’s military career, and includes a new introduction by James M. McPherson, author of the bestselling Battle Cry of Freedom. Distinguished, scholarly, yet eminently readable, Lee will fascinate not only the Civil War enthusiasts but also everyone interested in this crucial period of American history. Paperback
