In a careful re-examination of the historical evidence, Alan Nolan explodes many long-standing myths about Robert E. Lee and the American Civil War. The book may change readers' perceptions of the South's premier icon, as Nolan separates the Lee of reality from the Lee of mythology. The book should be of interest to general readers as well as Civil War buffs.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Nolan dethrones the myth of 'the Marble Man' with meticulous research.

"New Republic"


[Future authors] will have to face up to Nolan's material and we will all be the better for it.

"Washington Post"


"His argument is a persuasive one, artfully fashioned to stimulate the critical assessment he seeks.

"New York Times Book Review""


"Lee Considered" should be required reading for anyone who would understand the Confederacy's most famous soldier.

Gary W. Gallagher


"No student of the Civil War can afford to ignore the challenging and controversial conclusions of this study.

James M. McPherson, author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning "Battle Cry of Freedom: The Era of the Civil War""

"Nolan doesn't question Lee's undeniable greatness. [He] subjects the sources to brutal cross examinations. . . . His purpose is to place Lee within his proper historical context. . . . Nolan asks the right questions about Lee, especially his generalship."
-- Peter S. Carmichael, "Civil War Times"
