Robert E Lee at War









Robert E. Lee at War: Hope Arises from Despair

This is an amazing book, well-researched and thoughtfully presented about the story of Robert E. Lee’s ascension to command in June of 1862 of what would arguably become the most important of the Confederate armies: the Army of Northern Virginia. Author Scott Bowden used unpublished manuscripts, papers, and special collections as well as official records and memoirs to explain how Lee restructured a badly organized and dispirited force outside the Confederate capital of Richmond, devised a counter offensive, and then executed it starting on June the 26th, not even a month after meeting with his division commanders. Lee then fought five major battles in seven days, seizing the initiative in the campaign and driving the Federals from Richmond. It was one of the most remarkable feats in military history.
