Some of the foremost scholars contributed articles on the 8 full generals who led the CSA armies. Each chapter is a short biography and provides the latest views on their contributions (and sometime detriments) to the "Lost Cause". The book provides much information about the interrelationships (mostly through Jefferson Davis and West Point) that brought this group to the fore and also points out that each of these men had married into wealthy Southern, slave-holding families. Almost all had risen to high rank and esteem in the U.S. Army and had exhibited personal bravery in combat.
