Praise for the series:
"Robert Remini, the greatest Jackson scholar alive, offers a long-overdue reevaluation of Jackson's military career. Writing with customary brio, Remini brings to life Jackson's battles and wars, but goes further to enlarge Jackson's reputation as a strategist and tactician, and to suggest how those skills aided him in his later political career. Here is a fine addition to what is turning into an excellent series of military biographies." —Sean Wilentz, Princeton University, award-winning author of The Rise of American Democracy: Jefferson to Lincoln on Andrew Jackson
“Jim Lacey’s very readable biography of General Pershing is an excellent reminder of his role in swiftly transforming the United States Army into a major fighting force in 1917 – 1918, and also of his great importance in selecting the men who would command American forces in World War Two. It is a first-rate life of a great American General who is all too often overlooked or underestimated today.”
—Michael Korda, author of Ulysses S. Grant and Ike on Pershing
"A brisk entry in Palgrave's Great Generals series spotlights the battle prowess of Dixie's warrior-saint...a handy introduction to the military genius." —Kirkus on Stonewall Jackson
"The author of George S. Patton's biography in the Great Generals series now gives us the life of that most flamboyant officer's polar opposite... Axelrod's fine, brief treatment begins with distinction the refurbishing of his reputation." —Booklist, starred review, on Bradley
"Bradley, the latest offering from the Great Generals series edited by Gen. Wesley K. Clark, highlights the General's rise through the ranks to his eventual command of the 1.3 million troops in the 12th Army Group in Europe, the largest group of soldiers ever to serve under an American field commander. Alan Axelrod... takes useful time to characterize the interactions between Bradley and his counterparts... Axelrod explains how diverse influences made Bradley the efficient, straight-forward field general soldiers liked serving under." —WWII Magazine on Bradley
