LIEUTENANT GENERAL JAMES LONGSTREET - INNOVATIVE MILITARY STRATEGIST: The Most Misunderstood Civil War General
Examines the unique strategies and technological achievements made by Lieutenant-General James Longstreet, commander of the First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, during the American Civil War. Offers a new viewpoint of the war and the generals who tailored their designs to pursue the war, analyses Longstreet's views of the generals and the tactics and strategy they employed, and examines why Longstreet proposed and urged a new type of warfare against a backdrop of technological developments and the disparity between the North and South. Longstreet advocated for defensive warfare, using entrenchments, and trying to maneuver the enemy to assault his position, thus conserving manpower, resources and supplies.
