Kurzbeschreibung

From the Pulitzer Prizewinning author of Battle Cry of Freedom, a powerful new reckoning with Jefferson Davis as military commander of the Confederacy';The best concise book we have on the subject McPherson is our most distinguished scholar of the Civil War era.'The New York Times Book ReviewHistory has not been kind to Jefferson Davis. Many Americans of his own time and in later generations considered him an incompetent leader, not to mention a traitor. Not so, argues James M. McPherson. In Embattled Rebel, McPherson shows us that Davis might have been on the wrong side of history, but that it is too easy to diminish him because of his cause's failure. Gravely ill throughout much of the Civil War, Davis nevertheless shaped and articulated the principal policy of the Confederacythe quest for independent nationhoodwith clarity and force. He exercised a tenacious hands-on influence in the shaping of military strategy, and his close relationship with Robert E. Lee was one of the most effective military-civilian partnerships in history.Lucid and concise, Embattled Rebel presents a fresh perspective on the Civil War as seen from the desk of the South's commander in chief.From the Trade Paperback edition.
