Today I purchased a book by this name by Judith Lee Hallock. So before I read it, will the author be fair to Longstreet? Was Longstreet really a "monumental failure"? Was he even a failure? I am not sure how to judge Longstreet in the West. I thought General Longstreet practically won the Battle of Chickamauga almost by himself. The title alone makes me wonder if the author is objective on the subject.
