The devastating effect of Prince Albert's death on Queen Victoria is the stuff of legend, and in this fascinating biography Robert Rhodes James reveals the extraordinary man who inspired her devotion.

Robert E. Rodes personifies the best of those brave men, north and south, who gave the full measure of their life to their cause. Rodes' accomplishments in brigade command were legendary. His divisional leadership earned him ranking with the elite of the Confederacy's generals and officers. Born in 1829 in Lynchburg, Virginia, Rodes attended the Virginia Military Institute and worked as a civil engineer before the outbreak of the Civil War. In May 1861, he fought in First Manassas and quickly rose to brigadier general. His fighting leadership at Seven Days, South Mountain, and Antietam added to his reputation. Rodes was given divisional command just in time to attack in the opening offensives of the Battle of Gettysburg. One of Robert E. Lee's strongest fighting generals, he fought in the Wilderness and Spotsylvania Campaigns. There his respect and popularity continued to grow. Rodes was killed fighting near Winchester, Virginia during Jubal Early's 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign

Overall a reasonably acceptable biography on one of Lee's truly outstanding division commanders. However, there are a number of relatively basic misstatements and/or typographical errors. Either the result of inadequate scholarship or poor editing on the part of the publisher. Some examples: Page 20 General Richard Stoddard Ewell is referred to as Richard E. Ewell Page 21: Events that occurred preliminary to the Battle of First Manassas on July 16 are dated June 16 Union General George Gordon Meade is twice referred to as George C. Meade (pages 57, 120) Page 90 Catharine Furnace a significant landmark at Chancellorsville is referred to as Catharine's Furnace. Page 124: credits John Reynolds as being "first on the field at Gettysburg". Reynold's 1st Corps were the first infantry units on the field. However, John Buford's 1st Division cavalry, fighting dismounted, is credited with holding off Hill's 3rd corps to allow time for union infantry deployment. However, the author is to be applauded for providing a study of a largely ignored Confederate General.

Robert Rodes finally gets the biography he has deserved for years. In James Swisher's fine book the casual Civil War buff will be introduced to one of Robert E. Lee's best Division commanders. Historians have stayed away from a book on Rodes because of a perceived lack of information, but Swisher's passion for fellow Lynchburg, Virginia resident Rodes gave him the patience to unearth much undiscovered material on his subject. Like all Civil War Generals, Rodes had his good days (Chancellorsville, Wilderness, Spotsylvania) and his bad days (Gettysburg), but his superb leadership and bravery put him in high esteem with both his men and his superiors. Many felt there was no better commander in the Army of Northern Virginia. Because Rodes was killed at 3rd Winchester in September of 1864, and because many of his principle subordinates were killed during the war there was no one to write his book. James Swisher's biography of Rodes, besides being a great work of scholarship, is highly readable. Swisher has a great writers gift of taking cold facts and making his subject come to life...warts and all. This is a long overdue biography that every Civil War student will want to read. Many good maps and photographs. I recommend it highly!

This was a well written biography on a forgotten soldier who is just getting his due. Highly recommend this fine historical study of Confederate division commander in action!
