Truth in titling Aug 3, 2008
Thin volume of quotes from and about Longstreet, both before and during the war of Northern Agression, or Southern Independence, or the Civil War. The quotes reinforce Longstreet's loyalty to Lee, his fighting spirit, and his advanced tactical skills, while defending him from charges of improper action on that fatal day at Gettysburg.
Great quote book Jul 25, 2003
This is another great book of quotes from Southern Generals. ( actually you should by the set, which is four books of these) I really enjoyed the quotes, everyone taken from the history books.
There is one quote, which states, had Lee listened to Longstreet at Gettysburg, the Southern people would today be Free!
( Oh give me a break!)
Ok, that is a direct quote, but it's one Longstreet wrote, simplying putting words in Lee's mouth.
Please don't discard the book for this single quote, as it's a great book.
I'd like to see more of these quote books on all the Civil War Generals.
Interesting insight Oct 6, 2001
This is one of a series of books with quotes by and about "The South's Great Generals." A slim volume, it takes only a short time to read through.
I enjoyed this collection of quotes, as much for what his Union enemy's said about Longstreet, as what he said himself. However, reading the quotes regarding the criticisms of Lee's Old Warhorse in the battle of Gettysburg are almost painful. Yet they had to be included to give as full a picture of the man and the soldier as can be done in so short a space.
Readers and scholars of the War Between the States will enjoy this book, perhaps even keep it at hand to browse through at any time.
Always a Pleasure... Jun 26, 2000
Randall Bedwell's "May I Quote You ..." series is always a pleasure to read. General Longstreet was a plain spoken man, and Mr. Bedwell has captured the essence of him exactly! From General Longstreet, an undeservedly maligned American patriot, I have found words to live by: "Error lives but a day. Truth is eternal." If you enjoyed this book, try my other two favorites in the series, "May I Quote You General Lee?" and "May I quote You General Forrest?"
