In exile in Canada immediately after the Civil War's conclusion, Jubal Early wrote his personal account of the final year of the war. Typically opinionated, sometimes funny, caustically critical of his opponents, Early nevertheless left an important contribution to the literature of the Civil War, if for no other reason than his proximity to events. Involved in the major battles of the Shenandoah Valley, the Wilderness, Gettysburg, and more, Jubal Early was one of Lee's key generals. Loved by his men but little-liked by his officers, he was prickly, defensive, and quick tempered. To the end of his life, Jubal Early was an unreconstructed Confederate and promoter of the Lost Cause movement in the South. The key contribution of this book is Early's military details of battles and the contrast he provides to Grant's accounts. Though Early often relies on minutiae to contradict an account by an enemy (or even another rebel he disagrees with), this book is a book that anyone with interest in the Civil War should read. For the first time, this long-out-of-print book is available as an affordable, well-formatted book for e-readers and smartphones. Be sure to LOOK INSIDE or download a sample.
