Despite the literary outpouring on the life of Robert E. Lee, the southern chieftain remains an enigma. Peter S. Carmichael has assembled a formidable array of Civil War historians who rigorously return to Lee's own words and actions in interpreting the war in Virginia. This is the first collective volume to scrutinize specific aspects of the general's military career. Falling into neither the pro- nor anti-Lee camp, "Audacity Personified" challenges long-standing beliefs accepted since Douglas Southall Freeman's influential biography of Lee was published seventy years ago.
