"This volume is something more than a biography of Longstreet. It will prove indispensable to students of the Civil War for the new points of view which it opens up and for the fresh light it throws upon many of the incidents."--Times Literary Supplement
"This biography of Lee's 'war horse' is . . . dispassionate and critical. It sets forth, in admirable detail and with scrupulous accuracy, the story of Longstreet's military career."--Henry Steele Commager, New York Herald Tribune
"Should appeal to all students of the Civil War--and even those of us who do not agree with the authors upon every point of their thesis owe them a vote of thanks for producing so conscientious, readable, and thorough a biography of a controversial and largely neglected figure."--Stephen Vincent Benét, Saturday Review
