The Commanders Of Chancellorsville by Edward G. Longacre

As equally matched in skill as they were opposite in personality, the brash Union Gen. Joseph Hooker boasted of a sure defeat of the reserved Gen. Robert E. Lee. Ive got Robert E. Lee right where I want him, and even God Himself cannot stop me from destroying him, Boasted Hooker. Yet the battle of Chancellorsville stands as Lees greatest triumph.The story of the two generals has never been explored as it is here. Fighting Joe Hooker was brilliant, but also profane, bombastic, and his army so undisciplined that their pursuit of camp followers spawned the modern euphemism for prostitute. Robert E. Lee, equally gifted was known as the definitive devout, self-controlled Southern gentleman, leading an army that was exhausted, underfed, and outmanned. Chancellorsville stands not just as a pivotal battle of the Civil War but as the personal war between two warriors - stalking, striking, and counter-striking their way to ultimate victory or defeat.
