A majestically written account explains how the Civil War general summoned courage against the odds, inspired thousands to fight for their independence, and used his confidence and example to draw out the best from his troops. Summarizing Lee's leadership principles at the end of each chapter, Crocker recognizes Lee's genius with military strategy but is even more impressed with his ability to understand the human element—how Lee sized up his leaders, treated them like family, and developed their talents and character. Jonathan Hogan's pacing and enunciation are exceptionally effective. More impressive is his obvious resonance with the pathos and depth of Lee's epic life story, which he enfolds as if it's his own. Hogan makes this multidimensional figure and his leadership principles even more memorable. T.W. © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2009]
