This book discusses the many Confederate mistakes by their generals including those of Robert E. Lee and describes where they lost the war and how they could have won the war.
The author graduated from the Grove City College, Gove City, Pennsylvania where he served as Alumni Editor for the college newspaper. He served in World War II and the Korean War after which he spent much of his career as a technical and specification writer. He was an avid student of the battles of World War II especially those between German General Rommel and the British generals in North Africa. He continues his hobby if studying military campaigns. He disagreed with the conclusion of the four authors of the book "Why the South Lost the War" who concluded that they lost the war because they lost their nationalism. After retiring he researched and visited many of the battlefields of the Civil War so that he could refute the conclusion of these four authors. The book contains much new information and destroys myths made by the National Park Service, Shelby Foote and other authors. He is currently writing another book about an unknown Union general and two brothers who became guerrillas.
