General A.P. Hill: The Story of a Confederate Warrior (Vintage Civil War Library) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Confederate general who ranks with Lee, Jeb Stuart, and Stonewall Jackson but whose achievements have been unfairly neglected until now, finally receives his due in this invaluable biography by a noted historian of the Civil War. Drawing extensively on newly unearthed documents, this work provides a gripping battle-by-battle assessment of Hill's role in Antietam, Fredericksburg, Gettysburg, and other battles. 8 pages of photographs.

Review:

"Based on some heretofore unpublished letters and memoirs of both A.P. Hill and the men who served under him, this biography brings to life a relatively unknown Confederate general. A native of Virginia, Hill received military training at West Point and later saw combat in both Mexico and Florida. However, not until the Civil War, when he was given the 'Light Division' to command, was his knowledge of military science fully challenged and his ability to lead men better revealed. Hill's
troops would eventually see battle at Mechanicsville, Second Manassas, Harper's Ferry, Antietam, Gettysburg and the siege of Petersburg." Reviewed by Daniel Weiss, Virginia Quarterly Review (Copyright 2006 Virginia Quarterly Review)
