All unquestioned masterpiecc of the historian's art, and a towering landmark in the literature of the American Civil War. Lee's Lieutenants: A Study in Command is the most colorful and popular of all of Douglas Southall Freeman's works; it is generally considered the most penetrating study ever written of military personalities and tactics during the American Civil War. A sweeping narrative that presents a multiple biography against the flame-shot background of history, it is the story of the great figures of the Army of Northern Virginia who fought under Robert E. Lee as they came forward on the stage of war. In this first volume, Manassas to Malvern Hill, Dr. Freeman describes the rise and fall of General Beauregard, the growing friction between Jefferson Davis and Joseph E. Johnston, the emergence and failure of a number of military charlatans, and the first display of ability on the part of some new men at a time when the organization developed at Manassas collapsed at Seven Pines. The narrative illumines the rise of "Stonewall" Jackson and traces his progress in the Shenandoah Valley campaign and into Richmond amid the acclaim of the South, accompanies him through the failures during the Seven Days, and then leaves him, with the new army entirely organized, in the center of the stage of history. Manassas to Malvern Hill is the first volume of a three-volume work. In the second volume, the men whose reputations were made, or lost, on such fields as Manassas at the second battle of Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville dominate the narrative; volume three depicts the Gettysburg campaign and the thunder signaling the ruin of the Confederacy.

"Lee's Lieutenants: A Study in Command" by Douglas S. Freeman and abridged by Stephen W. Sears

Serious Civil War students, amateur Civil War aficionados and casual readers alike will find this to be a splendid work. The list of its' positive aspects is too long to enumerate here but of the many good things to be said of it for all classes of readers, there are a few that really stand out.
The personalities of the Confederate leaders are shown to be "works in progress". That is a big improvement over so many writings that present the leaders as the same man at the end of the war as at the beginning.
The struggles with changing leadership clear to the company levels and the negative impact of constant change in leadership at all levels give the reader a much more accurate sense of why things often went wrong - or right - in the field operations.
The view of the Administrative side of the Confederate war efforts frees the reader from the tunnel-vision that so often misguides debates and assessments of leaders, battles and operations. Seeing the conditions and circumstances the leaders had to work within enables the reader to keep criticism or praise in a much truer and fairer perspective.
The "sketches" of the leaders' personalities actually give the reader a more accurate measure than all the pseudo-in-depth analyses (and taint) usually found in the biographies written by the "armchair analysts" and politically correct types.
It illustrates through the successes and failures of the leaders the astounding logistical complexity of warfare in that era.
In all, it is a fascinating look at an incredible group of men - every one of them as human as you and I - involved in one of the most incredible series of events imaginable

The abridged volume of Lee's Lieutenants is an excellent title for anyone interested in Lee's Army of Northern Virginia. I have looked at the original 3-volume series and the only difference as one earlier reviewer points out is that the footnotes have been taken out. Given that Douglas Freeman was the editor of a Richmond, Virginia newspaper, one would expect several pages of footnotes. However, the book's essence is still retained.

Freeman covers the army's life from the Seven Days' Campaign in early 1862 to the bitter end at Appamattox in April 1865. He mentions just enough detail of the battles for the reader to comprehend the importance and result of each engagement. The deeper focus is on the main officers in Lee's army and their relationship with Lee and each other.

The narrative is free flowing and is easy to read without being simplistic. Indeed, while the book is just over 800 pages, I found myself reading several pages on many occasions.

If you are looking for a book about the Confederate side of the Civil War's Eastern Theater, then this is your read! The only gripe I had was the few maps - there could have been more and could have been more detailed. However, there are plenty of books out there on specific engagements that can make up for the difference.

Read and enjoy. Highly recommended!
Sorryyy
No one can beat Dr. Freeman in research. He devoted his life to researching Virginia history. If you want to know the subjects Dr. Freeman writes about- read his books and you will feel you have actually met the individuals he writes about, whether it's Geo. Washington, R.E. Lee, A.P. Hill, Jeb Stuart and Stonewall Jackson (just to name a few) you will come away knowing more about them as people- not just icons of history.

If there was a fan club for Dr. Freeman's books, I would want to be a member. He is truly one of the greatest historians ever!

Well pleased. very good condition

Great historical narrative on Lee's commanders. It's an abridged version of Freeman's work, but it is still a big read. Fascinating how the commanders interacted ... and on their perspectives.

This hasn't set in yet. Emotional and poignant. Total sacrifice and courage. Would love to see what Freeman could do today.

Douglas S. Freeman, superior, of course,
Stephen W. Sears' abridgement fantastic and very readable!
This is a great book in a 3 volume series that costs over $156 new. Widely acknowledged as the best read on the superior generalship of the Southern leaders; particularly in the early years of the Civil War.
