Summary
When John Bell Hood entered into the services of the Confederate Army, he was 29 years old, a handsome man and courageous soldier, loyal to the ideal of Confederate Independence and eager to fight for it. He rose fast, attaining the temporary rank of full general, only to fall faster. Blamed by his contemporaries for contributing to the defeat of his beloved Confederacy, Hood struggled to refute their accusations. This book is full of invaluable information and insights into the retreat from Dalton in early 1864, and the passionate, bitter attempt of a soldier to rebut history's judgment of himself as general and man
