The American Civil War was one of the last wars in which generals often led from the front, risking death at the head of their men. It was a war of larger-than-life characters, generals who earned colourful reputations and strong opinions among their soldiers and colleagues. These men were not stamped out as identical products of a professional military machine; some were veterans, others men of limited experience promoted to high rank for a variety of reasons, good and bad. This title outlines the careers and characters - and illustrates the appearance, in their authentic uniforms - of famous Confederate commanders who fought in the Eastern theatre of operations, Lee, Garland, Stuart, Pendleton, Blair and nearly 20 more.
