The twenty-one profiles of Confederate generals in this volume chronicle the South's war effort. Familiar leaders such as Lee, Jackson, and Stuart are each covered, as are the notorious Nathan Bedford Forrest, Episcopalian bishop Leonidas Polk, and John C. Breckinridge, who ran against Lincoln in 1860 and briefly served in the US Senate. With the same accessible style of the first volume, Jones shows how the outcome of battles, campaigns, and even entire theatres often depended on individual commanders.
