Invisible Hero : Patrick R. Cleburne
by Jr. Bruce H. Stewart




Overview -
In comparison with the Army of Northern Virginia, Confederate forces in the West saw limited success. Still, there were outstanding generals whose accomplishments have received minimal attention, particularly the infantry commander Pat Cleburne. Invisible Hero: Patrick R. Cleburne presents a level of detail that is unsurpassed in the study of this significant figure, focusing on the military and political aspects of his service while avoiding the social or personal sidelights found in a general biography. Battles and movements are explained in an objective light, exposing his triumphs as well as his failures, his assets as well as his shortcomings. Accounts and letters from soldiers in the ranks present a picture of the general in the field as seen by his own men. The result has been an analysis of a man unappreciated by his own government, yet widely regarded as the finest infantry officer in the Western Theatre.
