Synopsis:
The passage of 130 years has only deepened the fascination and reverence for Confederate general Thomas Jonathan "Stonewall" Jackson. He ranks today as among the half-dozen greatest soldiers that America has produced. Military academies in both hemispheres still teach his tactics. Revered by his men, respected by his foes, Jackson became seemingly invincible. When he learned of the general's fatal wound, Robert E. Lee sent his "affectionate regards", saying, "He has lost his left arm but I my right arm". Jackson's early death in 1863 was the greatest personal loss suffered by the Confederacy and one that permanently crippled the wartime South. This eagerly awaited biography is based on years of research into little-known manuscripts, unpublished letters, newspapers, and other primary sources. It offers for the first time a complete portrait - not only of Jackson the brilliant military strategist and beloved general but also of Jackson, the man of orphaned background, unyielding determination to conquer adversity, and deep religious convictions.

Review:
"By my count, two dozen writers have attempted biographies, and there are any number of special studies, monographs and essays. Now going straight to the head of the class of Jackson biographers, and likely to remain there, is James I. Robertson Jr. Mr. Robertson...tells us that he has been nourishing this mighty oak of a book for seven years. Before that he had produced a history of the Stonewall Brigade, Jackson's first command, and a biography of Jackson's fellow general A. P. Hill. In the process, he appears to have investigated every nook and cranny of Confederate history and every scrap of evidence relating to the general who at the peak of his fame, he writes, 'was arguably the most famous field commander in the world.'' The result, 'Stonewall Jackson: The Man, the Soldier, the Legend', gives us far and away the sharpest picture we have ever had of this enigmatic figure."

Stephen W. Sears, New York Times Book Review, 03/16/1996

Review:
"Historians and the huge legion of of Jackson aficionados will flock to the work despite its length and be rewarded. It will doubtless immediately be viewed as the best, most reliable biography on this enigmatic subject yet written. And it will dispel many of the enigmas themselves."

John C. Waugh, Washington Post Book World, 03/16/1997
