About this title


The Civil War scholar offers new insights on the myths and realities of the South's victories and defeats. He scrutinizes Jefferson Davis's relationship with his generals, revealing why only Robert E. Lee succeeded in winning Davis's confidence, and examines the myths surrounding Stonewall Jackson and John C. Breckinridge. He explores causes of the war, turning points in Southern decision making, and differences in tactics between South and North. Includes b&w photos. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.

From the Back Cover:

"This provocative book challenges readers to look at old questions in new ways. It 's a splendid read, entertaining and enlightening in equal measure and leavened with more than a dash of humor."--Gary W. Gallagher, editor of The Third Day at Gettysburg and Beyond

"The Cause Lost provides interesting and informative reading, in the process presenting some new ideas and fresh facts while exposing some old fallacies."--Albert Castel , author of Decision in the West: The Atlanta Campaign of 1864

"William C. Davis is one of the best and most prolific historians of the American Civil War. His many books on battles, commanders, and Civil War photography have added immeasurably to our knowledge and understanding."--James M. McPherson, author of Battle Cry of Freedom
