Synopsis: Get ready for a rousing rebel yell as best-selling author H. W. Crocker, III, charges through bunkers and battlefields, busting myths, shattering stereotypes, and revealing little-known truths.
From the Back Cover: A rousing, rollicking guide to the great war that shaped America--and to the spirit of the Old South that we need so much today.
The politically correct history that dominates our schools and universities insists that Jefferson Davis was another Hitler, Robert E. Lee was the equivalent of Rommel, and the Confederate States of America was our own little version of the Third Reich--a blot on American history. But reality, as always, was different: the Old South, as H. W. Crocker III explains in The Politically Incorrect GuideTM to the Civil War, had immense charm, grace, and merit--and a very strong Constitutional case. This book is a joyful, myth-busting, rebel yell that shatters today's Leftist and demeaning stereotypes about the South and the Civil War--and shows why, in the words of G. K. Chesterton, "America and the whole world is crying out for the spirit of the Old South."Praise for The Politically Incorrect GuideTM to the Civil War
"You can't understand America until you understand the War of Northern Aggression, and Mr. Crocker tells the story in such a delightful, politically incorrect way that you can't wait to get to the end of his book to see whether Marse Robert actually pulls out a stunning upset. Great scholarship, great story-telling, and great fun."--Wesley Pruden, editor emeritus of the Washington Times and political columnist
"In short order, Harry Crocker has lifted the modern veil of misinformation surrounding the major actors in the War. In the process, he has rescued the character of Robert E. Lee and shown Union heroes such as Grant, Sherman, and Lincoln to be more human, complex, and in some cases loathsome than contemporary history texts suggest. The South becomes more admirable and the North more contemptible. Here is the War, warts and all, for everyone to see."--Brion McClanahan, Ph.D. in American History, University of South Carolina
"The only way this idiosyncratic take on the wa-wuh could be any better is if we'd won. Even Harry Crocker couldn't do that, but he has written a witty book full of history and insight. If I'd ever gotten around to joining the United Daughters of the Confederacy, I bet my chapter would thank him. Yankees will enjoy it, too."--Charlotte Hays, Southern gossip columnist and co-author (among other books) of Being Dead Is No Excuse, The Official Southern Ladies Guide to Hosting the Perfect Funeral
"I had supposed it wasn't possible these days to talk reasonably, as well as informatively, about our great national cataclysm, the Civil War. H. W. Crocker III brings off that extraordinary feat with style, verve, and wit. Give that gentleman a medal for gallantry and public service."--William Murchison, nationally syndicated columnist
