Lee he was a meteor shining from a clouded sky- and to Braxton Bragg, he was an officer ever alive to a success. He was Patrick Ronayne Cleburne, one of the greatest of all Confederate field commanders. In Stonewall of the West, Craig Symonds offers the first full-scale critical biography of this compelling figure.

He explores all the sources of Cleburnes commitment to the Southern cause, his growth as a combat leader from Shiloh to Chickamauga, and his emergence as one of the Confederacys most effective field commanders at Missionary Ridge, Ringgold Gap, and Picketts Mill. In addition, Symonds unravels the mystery of Spring Hill and recounts Cleburnes dramatic and untimely death (at the age of 36) at Franklin, Tennessee, where he charged the enemy line on foot after having had two horses shot from under him.

Symonds also explores Cleburnes role in the complicated personal politics of the Army of Tennessee, as well as his astonishing proposal that the decimated Confederate ranks be filled by ending a slavery and arming blacks against the Union.
