Douglas Southall Freeman set the gold standard in historical writing on the American Civil War. Twice winner of the Pulitzer Prize, he spent eight years on the completion of Lee’s Lieutenants in three volumes. That work has now been edited into one volume by Stephen Sears another distinguished Civil War Historian and author of such works as Gettysburg and Landscape Turned Red. Lee’s Lieutenants has long been considered one of the great masterpieces of military history. And as James McPherson notes in his introduction: “Stephen W. Sears...has performed a service of inestimable value...It is a lean, muscular narrative. Freeman would surely have approved.” Lee’s Lieutenants stands as a defining work, a towering landmark in Civil War literature. Accessible at last in a one-volume edition, Lee’s Lieutenants is essential reading for all Civil War buffs, students of war, and admirers of the historian’s art practiced at its very highest level.

When Douglas Southall Freeman's original three-volume version of Lee's Lieutenants appeared in the 1940s, it marked a high point in Civil War history, and the books were lauded not only for their scholarship but for their elegant writing. This monument of Civil War literature has been skillfully abridged by one of the most noted present-day Civil War historians, Stephen W. Sears. The new one-volume abridgement retains the core material of the original and makes Freeman's fine writing available in a much more accessible format.From the Publisher:
