Sintesi dell'editore

Jeb Stuart: The Last Cavalier is a full and definitive biography of the dashing and enigmatic Confederate hero of the Civil War, General J.E.B. Stuart.

This life-sized portrait of Stuart surveys his life from childhood through his training at West Point, his years on the Western frontier, and his decision to stand with Virginia when war arrived. His brilliant Civil War career is covered in detail, from the raid on Chambersburg to his final, fatal clash at Yellow Tavern.

"The rudimentary field communications of the Civil War demanded of the cavalry the utmost in bravery, durability, and vigilance," writes Burke Davis in his introduction to this edition. "Victory or defeat of armies was often in the hands of their cavalrymen."

"The narrative is excellent....This sympathetic and carefully researched work belongs in every Civil War collection." ( Library Journal)
"Barrett Whitener[s] voice generates the narrative and wraps deliciously around each of the players. General Lee speaks with courtly ease and Stuart with boyish energy as the laconic Jackson moves across Virginia." ( AudioFile)

Entertaining

This is one of the more entertaining and interesting books I've listened to on Audible, and I have hundreds. It reads more like a novel than a history book and easily holds your attention throughout. I highly recommend this as a fun and interesting read about a huge Confederate Civil War figure.

Must Read for Civil War Buffs

Brings this unique character to life and presents the conflicting morals and values of the men that waged that war from a refreshing and non-judgemental viewpoint.

Good story, poor recording

I am a fan of MG J.E.B. Stuart, I was excited to listen to this biography. I was disappointed in how many times the recording repeated itself, no less than 10 times.

I really tried to like it

the readers effort to act the story out using so many silly sounding voiced makes for terrible listening. but when he does FEMALE choices it's just too hard to listen. The story is very generic with very little substance from a strategic perspective or much on the interactions of the senior Confederate leadership (Lee, Jackson, Longstreet) it just sounds like he was wondering the country side doing what ever he wanted to do. I'll be sending this one back after less then 1/2 the book listened to.

Great book but a note on the editing

There are some problems with the editing. A few clips of about a minute in length are repeated back to back several times throughout the book.

Read This plus Rebel Yell

Those who liked this book will love Rebel Yell which is even better written by Gwynne and read supremely well by Smith and puts more clarity into the coordination of battles between StonewallJackson and Jeb Stuart and portrays their unique relationship which drove me to seek more information on Stuart through this book.

good story hard to listen

story was good, but really hard to follow. the narrator's voice and cadence made me lose focus. he used the same inflection and tone for every paragraph and then repeated that inflection every few sentences.
