I lost this book about halfway, still waiting (to no avail) for descriptions of battles and Lee's genius. This book describes, in great detail, the demographics of Lee's army complete with numbers regarding education levels, income and wealth, and family background. I wouldn't have purchased the novel had it been described more accurately by the publisher. It's a fine work but wasn't what I was looking for and found it boring.

While listening it was difficult not to have much empathy for the Southern soldier of the Civil War. The incredible hardships and desperate situations they faced for almost the entire war would be overwhelming to lesser men. The twist was that in the end they realized win or lose slavery was at an end, yet they fought on. It was an intersting insight into the thoughts and delimmas they faced and died for, what a waste. All-in-all it was a good book well written and eazy to listen to.
