From the Publisher:

A major counter-revisionist biography of one of the most complex and controversial men in American history. Taylor, who "writes with a confidence generated by thorough research"(San Francisco Chronicle), offers new details on Lee's personal life as well as of his generalship. He offers a major rebuttal of recent works. Focusing on Lee's personal life and his military ability, on his attitude toward slavery, and on the erstwhile Confederacy's Lee "cult," Duty Faithfully Performed counters these revisionist criticisms with a forceful defense of General Lee's character and general accomplishments.

About the Author:

John M. Taylor has contributed to many publications, including Military History Quarterly, the Wall Street Journal, and The Washington Post. Taylor is also the author of William Henry Seward-- Lincoln's Right Hand, Confederate Raider: Raphael Semmes of the Alabama.
