Publisher's Summary

Stonewall Jackson was a military genius, at once peculiar and perfect, a fearless soldier in battle but a God-fearing man who hesitated to kill on Sunday. He broke the rules of war to win, and yet his tactics are studied in military academies the world over. From the remarkable Valley Campaign through the Seven Days, Manassas, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and the masterful though tragic sweep at Chancellorsville, where Jackson was felled by one of his own soldiers, this is a compelling narrative of men and war. Burke Davis brings the color, vivid characterization, and immediacy of the best fiction to this fascinating biography.

They Calle Him Stonewall

The book is an excellent account of the period in the Civil War in which Stonewall Jackson served the Confederacy and his major contribution to its' early successes; and the loss that Robert E. Lee felt after the death of Stonewall.

A Great General

This was an excellent audiobook. I learned many new details about Jackson's life, which I never knew before. The story was riveting and I also really enjoyed learning much more about Jackson's life as a young man, and about his marriages and family. This was a completely new side to him from my perspective. I also thought that the narrator did a very nice job with the reading. I highly recommend this book if you are interested in biographies, military history or the American Civil War.
