Invisible Hero by Bruce Stewart

Book Description

This title presents the Civil War career and command of Patrick Cleburne. In comparison with the Army of Northern Virginia, Confederate forces in the West saw limited success. Still, there were outstanding generals whose accomplishments have received minimal attention, particularly the infantry commander Pat Cleburne. To the critical student of the war, "Invisible Hero: Patrick R. Cleburne" presents a level of detail that is unsurpassed in the study of this significant figure. Along with the introduction of pertinent maps, this approach allows the reader to actually visualize the battlefield with a clear understanding of the movements of Cleburne's command. In this manner, his immediate area can be studied by itself, but it is always seem within the confines of the larger engagement. The direction and focus here remains on the military and political aspects of his service while avoiding the social or personal sidelights found in a general biography. In addition, the book examines the relationships that governed Cleburne's actions, particularly those with Braxton Bragg, William Hardee, and John B. Hood. Their thoughts, as well as the official policies in Richmond were pivotal in his Civil War career. Battles and movements are explained in an objective light, exposing his triumphs as well as his failures, his assets as well as his shortcomings. While correspondence from Cleburne's superiors reveals their confidence in his ability, the ultimate lack of a well-deserved promotion is explored in great depth. Accounts and letters from soldiers in the ranks present a picture of the general in the field as seen by his own men. The result has been an analysis of a man unappreciated by his own government, yet widely regarded as the finest infantry officer in the Western Theatre.
