About the Author
Christian B. Keller is the Dwight D. Eisenhower Chair of National Security and Professor of History in the Department of National Security and Strategy at the United States Army War College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Keller is the author of five previous histories for academic presses. This is his first trade book.
Christian B. Keller's assessment of Robert E. Lee and 'Stonewall' Jackson reminds us that command relationships profoundly shaped the course of the Civil War. His analysis of Jackson's contribution to the partnership, the impact of operations in the Eastern Theater, and the degree to which personal and professional ties intersected should spark a good deal of discussion among those interested in the Confederacy's premier army and its most famous commanders.--Gary W. Gallagher, author of 'Lee and His Army in Confederate History'
Christian Keller cuts through the Lost Cause haze and a century of debate to give us our clearest view yet of arguably the most important and effective partnership of the American Civil War. He argues persuasively for both the strategic and cultural importance of the Lee-Jackson combine, offering along the way much for modern leaders and students to consider. Dr. Keller weaves narrative and analysis brilliantly, artfully spanning the rarely crossed chasm between academic and public history. This is an important, thoughtful book, well done.--John Hennessy, author of 'Return to Bull Run: The Campaign and Battle of Second Manassas'
Students of strategy and tactics, as well as of the Civil War, will find this a useful look at a storied partnership.-- (06/01/2019)
A masterpiece of original and seminal historical scholarship.-- (09/20/2019)
