Praise

Washington Post Book World
"Historians and the huge legion of of Jackson aficionados will flock to the work despite its length and be rewarded. It will doubtless immediately be viewed as the best, most reliable biography on this enigmatic subject yet written. And it will dispel many of the enigmas themselves." - John C. Waugh 03/16/1997

New York Times Book Review
"By my count, two dozen writers have attempted biographies, and there are any number of special studies, monographs and essays. Now going straight to the head of the class of Jackson biographers, and likely to remain there, is James I. Robertson Jr. Mr. Robertson...tells us that he has been nourishing this mighty oak of a book for seven years. Before that he had produced a history of the Stonewall Brigade, Jackson's first command, and a biography of Jackson's fellow general A. P. Hill. In the process, he appears to have investigated every nook and cranny of Confederate history and every scrap of evidence relating to the general who at the peak of his fame, he writes, 'was arguably the most famous field commander in the world.'' The result, 'Stonewall Jackson: The Man, the Soldier, the Legend', gives us far and away the sharpest picture we have ever had of this enigmatic figure." - Stephen W. Sears 03/16/1996
