General Robert E. Lee was a complicated man and military figure. In Robert E. Lee, the eleventh book in the critically acclaimed Great Generals Series, Noah Andre Trudeau follows the general's Civil War path with a special emphasis on Lee's changing set of personal values as the conflict wended through four bloody years, offering tantalizing glimpses into Lee's character and exploring his famous skills as a crafty and daring tactician. This insightful new account delivers a fresh perspective on one of the most beloved and enigmatic military leaders of all time, as well as on the war that divided our nation and led to many of the sectional political issues that have since cast a long shadow over American politics.

"Trudeau's admiring biography concentrates on Civil War engagements from Lee's point of view, providing lessons in leadership through the vehicle of military history. Tom Weiner has a strong, appealing voice, and he reads crisply but too rapidly. Some of the descriptions of troop movements, interactions among officers, and battles are complex, especially without maps, but Weiner hardly stops for breath, as if reporting live from the front. Some lines call for a slower cadence, a different emotional weight, time for reflection, but Weiner seldom varies the pace. It's a strong, brisk performance, but more nuance, variety, and reflection on the text would have served the book and the listener better. W.M. (c) AudioFile 2011, Portland, Maine"
