Description
John Bell Hood was a career soldier, the commander of the Texas Brigade, a staunch supporter of the Confederacy, serving Robert E. Lee and Jefferson Davis. His military history embraced both incredible success and dismal failure as he moved from the traditions of West Point to lead the ragged Confederate army. Hood sacrificed both his left arm and his right leg to the cause of Southern independence. At Sharpsburg and Gettysburg he was lauded as a brilliant officer and admired by the Southern belles who had heard of his unparalleled reputation for bravery on the battlefield. The Gallant Hood provides the reader with a sharp and affecting portrait of a man who helped to shape American history. It is the story of a warrior who would not give up his dream of an independent Southern nation no matter how heavy the consequences.--www.Goodreads.com
