Anyone not drinking the Lost Cause Kool-aid should have some "distaste" for Lee's reverence. He's long been deified beyond reason by the South and, while surely worth some praise, is certainly not worth the level of praise many heap upon him.as if Pryor has some sort of distaste of Lee’s reverence, and has made it her goal to prove that he is not worthy of the praise.
The book skims over or outright skips a number of Civil War battles and campaigns that Lee and the ANV were involved in. It cites Wikipedia as a source several times. It makes very dubious arguments regarding Lee’s views on slavery, including a somewhat infamous comparison to Lincoln. Some odd errors like "St. Marye's Heights" and confusing the Copse of Trees and Zeigler Grove.I vaguely recall that Korda's book got mixed reviews. What was the take from Korda's detractors?
