Confederate General Thomas Jonathan Jackson was undoubtedly one of the the most influential military commanders of the United States Civil War. Had he not met his death early May, 1863, his influence could well have changed the course of the war. Frank Vandiver's detailed research and zestful writing style provide a vivid description of Stonewall's boyhood, West Point training, early career, years of teaching at the Virginia Military Academy, and Civil War campaigns. The author also gives us deep insight into Jackson's personal life and religious feelings, which were so influential on his military thought and actions. "A definitive biography of the great military genius, this will stand out as a brilliant study of strategy and tactics in these campaigns in which the Army of the Shenandoah bore the brunt. Vandiver . . . has done an exacting job of scholarship . . . ." - Kirkus Reviews
