This collection of eight essays originally was reviewed by Felicity Allen in the Fall 1999 CWBR. She noted: "Five of the papers discuss relations between commander in chief [Jefferson] Davis and some of his full generals: J.E. Johnston, R.E. Lee, Beauregard, Bragg, and Hood; one deals with the wives of all these except Hood; another concerns pictures of Davis in the northern press; and the last addresses broad questions of strategy and history."
