Summary
Robert E. Lee was a gentleman. Although he lived during a time filled with conflict and turmoil, in the eyes of his countrymen he emerged from the Civil War with untainted integrity and the respect of all. Despite being perceived as one of the greatest military leaders of all time, he managed to maintain a most humble spirit. In this engaging new biographical study of Lee, J. Stephen Wilkins examines the sterling character of this undeniably noble man. Charles Bracelen Flood has said that the essence of Robert E. Lee "was to be found not in what he said, but in what he did. There were dimensions to Lee, but his life was one long response to whatever struck him as being the call of duty." He was bound by duty to care for his mother; duty as a son, a student, a soldier, a husband, a father, and a general; and duty as a mentor of students at both West Point and Washington College. Duty called him at every point of his life. In this captivating look at his leadership in action, we see why and how Lee answered again and again the calls of duty he could not ignore. Indeed, Robert E. Lee was a leader of leaders. - Publisher
