L... ee-in the Confederate States Army during the American Civil War.Although heartily disliked by Confederate president Jefferson Davis, who often criticized him for a lack of aggressiveness and took every opportunity to sully his opponent's name, General Johnston's patriotic devotion to the Southern cause prevented him from resigning, and he rose to gain enormous respect from his major opponents for his actions during a number of campaigns-including General Ulysses S. Grant and Union Maj. Gen. William T. Sherman, who became close friends with Johnston in subsequent years.A leading text for Civil War enthusiasts.Illustrated with 6 detailed maps.
