A STUDY IN COMMAND Vol. II: Cedar Mountain to Chancellorsville

bij Douglas Southall Freeman—

“If anybody had any doubt that this magnificent biography was not even better than Freeman’s great life of Lee, then the reading of the second volume will remove it . . . Search as far as you will and you will not find a more dramatic, exciting or moving piece of writing. Dr. Freeman is the master biographer of these times.”—Boston Herald. “Grows in importance with each volume. No such adventure Into the minutiae of military character study has been previously attempted by an American. What Freeman does superbly, is to illumine the inner workings of the organization which Lee forged and which he kept improving in spite of awful losses and cantankerous bickerings among his lieutenants.”—Lloyd Lewis, Chicago Daily News. Wifh portraits and specially drawn maps.


“This book will hold interest and value for American readers a century from now, two centuries from now. It is a rare and exciting experience to be able to say that with confidence of a newly-published book.”—John T. Frederick, Chicago Sun
