The ultimate success of the Union armies Jackson’s strategic innovations shattered the conventional wisdom of how war was waged he was so far ahead of his time that his techniues would be studied generations into the future In April Jackson was merely another Confederate general in an army fighting what seemed to be a losing cause By June he had engineered perhaps the greatest military campaign in American history and was one of the most famous men in the Western world He had over given the Confederate cause what it had recently lacked hope and struck fear into the hearts of the Union Rebel Yell. SC Gwynne sure knows how to tell a story I was a little afraid that a 700 page book focused on one person in the Civil War would be a little tedious but I couldn't have been wrong This book is fascinating I got caught up in it like I normally would a novel It's intense sometimes really sad and sometimes really funnyI was also a little surprised that I found myself sympathetic with Stonewall and his troops as they move through the story This was my first Civil War book from the perspective of the South Seeing it through JacksonLeeDavis' eyes didn't make me change my mind about the outcome or about the causes of the war But it did help me understand the southern mindset a little betterMaybe the most interesting part of this book is that you figure out pretty uickly why the Civil War ended up being so brutal The first couple of years were basically a stalemate because nobody yet understood that total annihilation was the only way either side would winAnyway I highly recommend it

Rebel YellFrom the author of the prizewinning New York Times bestseller Empire of the Summer Moon comes a thrilling account of how Civil War general Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson became a great and tragic American heroStonewall Jackson has long been a figure of legend and romance As much as any person in the Confederate pantheon even Robert E Lee he embodies the romantic Southern notion of the virtuous lost cause Jackson is also considered without argument one of our country’s greatest military figures His brilliance at the art of war tied Abraham Lincoln and the Union high command in knots and threatened. The Rebel Yell is one of a number of books about Thomas J Stonewall Jackson Some say Stonewall was one of the greatest generals of the Civil War The book's title is of course the name given the actual screech of charging Confederate soldiers that sent chills up the spine of Yankee soldiers It was Stonewall Jackson's men at the First Battle of Manassas that started the phenomenon Stonewall was said to be a cold blooded killer As a leader he was not touchy feely but his men would follow him anywhere because he won battles He was lost early in the war killed by his own men when they mistakenly believed he and his staff were the enemy when returning to camp at dusk Jackson would later die due to poor care after the amputation of the left arm When Robert E Lee heard of Stonewall's death he commented Jackson lost his left arm and I have lost my right If you like history this is a good one well researched and written
