What to expect

Deemed “irreplaceable” by Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson assumed his nickname during the Battle of Bull Run in the Civil War. It is said that the Army of Northern Virginia never fully recovered from the loss of Jackson’s leadership when he was accidentally shot by one of his own men and died in 1863. Davis highlights Stonewall Jackson as a general who emphasized the importance of reliable information and early preparedness, who so believed in information that he had a personal mapmaker with him at all times, and he details Jackson’s many lessons in strategy and leadership.

“Davis’ exceptional biography of Stonewall Jackson breathes new life into the Civil War legend and his foot cavalry. Davis deftly reveals the relevance today of the man who created a textbook on tactics by accomplishing so much, so often, with so little.”

Jack Coughlin, Gunnery Sergeant, USMC (Ret.), and New York Times bestselling author of Shooter: The Autobiography of the Top-Ranked Marine Sniper

“Offers insightful analyses of Jackson’s tendencies and behavior…Davis intensifies his subject’s relevance by interjecting several allusions to the current war in Iraq…An excellent little book.”
