Douglas Southall Freeman set the gold standard in historical writing on the American Civil War. Twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, he spent eight years on the completion of Lees Lieutenants in three volumes. That work has now been edited into one volume by Stephen Sears another distinguished Civil War Historian and author of such works as Gettysburg and Landscape Turned Red. Lees Lieutenants has long been considered one of the great masterpieces of military history. And as James McPherson notes in his introduction: Stephen W. Searshas performed a service of inestimable valueIt is a lean, muscular narrative. Freeman would surely have approved. Lees Lieutenants stands as a defining work, a towering landmark in Civil War literature. Accessible at last in a one-volume edition, Lees Lieutenants is essential reading for all Civil War buffs, students of war, and admirers of the historians art practiced at its very highest level.
