2 - 4 weeks availability
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. This book outlines the careers and characters - and illustrates the appearance, in their authentic uniforms - of famous Confederate commanders who fought in the Western theatre of operations, including Beauregard, Johnston, Jackson, Cheatham and nearly 20 more.
