Price New from Used from Hardcover "Please retry" $ $ $ Paperback "Please retry" Author: Robert Morton Hughes. General Joseph Johnston comes across as a deeply committed but much flawed General, the book covers his early career, through the Civil War and onto the aftermath.

General Johnston Robert Morton Hughes Full view - In general terms — the war to cease ; a general amnesty, so far as the Executive of the United States can command, on condition of the disbandment of the Confederate armies, the distribution of the arms, and the resumption of peaceful pursuits by the officers and men hitherto.

The book doesn't go into any analysis of whether Johnston's ambiguous reputation was justified by his poor performance as a general, or whether he was simply the victim of bad luck (being in the wrong place at the wrong time) and the animosity of Confederate President Jefferson Davis who wouldn't give him a fair hearing/5(6).

General Joseph E. Johnston was in command of Confederate forces at the South's first victoryManassas in July and at its lastBentonville in April Many of his contemporaries considered him the greatest southern field commander of the war; others ranked him second only to Robert E.

Lee. But Johnston was an enigmatic man/5. Dan Bauer's book, The Long Lost Journal of Confederate General James Johnson Pettigrew, doesn't really try to answer any of these lofty and important questions. What it does - is to give the reader some fantastic insights into the thoughts and actions of a Southern gentleman, a Charleston lawyer, who risked and lost everything for The Cause in which he believed.4/4(10).
