Why I give this book 5 stars
Reviewed in the United States on June 26, 2017
The book is about Stonewall Jackson - one of America's greatest battlefield commanders. What matters most to Civil War afficiandos is Stonewall and the Civil War. I care as much about Stonewall pre-military, especially pre-Civil War, as I do about the Titantic before it hit the iceberg.
This book gives an excellent summary of Stonewall Jackson during the Civil War. From the moment he left VMI for Richmond to the moment of his death. The stuff that matters most. There is some material from before the Civil War but the book has the title Rebel Yell for a reason.
If you are interested in whether Stonewall's baby shoes were bronzed or not, then this is not the book for you. If you are interested in Stonewall the Civil War battlefield phenomenon, then I highly recommend this book.
