General Robert E. Lee was a complicated man and military figure. In Robert E.
Lee, the 11th book in the critically acclaimed Great Generals Series, Noah Andre Trudeau follows the general's Civil War path with
a special emphasis on Lee's changing set of personal values as the conflict winded through four bloody years and by exploring his
famous skills as a crafty and daring tactician. According to his publisher, “Trudeau adds a fresh perspective toward understanding
a major figure in American history who remains decidedly an enigma.”
