Inhaltsangabe: The life story of one of the Civil War's most combative, assertive, and controversial generals examines his role in the successes and failures of Robert E. Lee's Army of Northern Virginia.
From Library Journal:
In the spate of Civil War books that flood the market each year, it is a wonder that no one has produced a full-scale, modern biography of Early. Thanks to veteran journalist Osborne, we now have a well-written and balanced account of Early's life and career that will appeal to general readers and scholars alike. Osborne explains the source of Early's extraordinary ambition, describes his antebellum political career, including his antisecessionist vote in the 1861 Virginia convention, and traces his development throughout the war into the bitter and unreconstructed rebel he always remained. The bulk of the book consists of Osborne's careful campaign history, for Early fought with Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia until he received an independent command in 1864. All the controversies that surrounded Early--about Gettysburg, the raid on Washington, and Cedar Creek--are handled in a judicious manner. Perhaps the most intriguing part of the book is Early's postwar machinations to elevate Lee to secular sainthood and to create the myth of the Lost Cause. Osborne does justice to a fascinating life. For public and academic libraries.
