Poutting Abe declared war on Lee because Lee chose home defense.
This is my second copy of this book. I loaned out the first and it never came home.
While obviously having a deep respect for Lee's character and moral values, the author discusses his flaws as well. The author, J. Steven Wilkes, quotes extensively from letters, speeches and other correspondence of Lee, his family, and other contemporaries of the General's. The book's author thoroughly understands the Confederate South and it's way of of thinking and doing. For example, while the North declared total war on the South and killed civilians, raped their women, pillaged and destroyed their property, needlessly burned whole cities to the ground and more, the South refused to do the same to the North but rather practiced civilized warfare. While discussing his military career, the book also discusses Lee's family life. He was A Christian who lived what the Bible teaches. I highly recommend this book. Lee is truly an admirable man. I've also read Wilkins book on another truly admirable Southern general Stonewall Jackson. He was also a Christian who lived his life to please God and was a good friend of Lee's. I recommend this book as well.
