- Dec 2, 2004Mr. Mix-
It is just my opinion, but I think by far and away the best CW
biography to come out the last few years is Robertson's "Stonewall
Jackson". It is exhaustively researched, well written, breaks a lot
of new ground and dispels a lot of myths. I saw it is now out in
I am not a big 'Stonewall' fan and certainly not a 'the war began
and ended with Virginia believer'. But for me I can not think of a
CW biography in the last 15 years that even approachs the over-all
quality and value of this work.
I could of course be all wrong-
