Publisher's Summary

Jeb Stuart: The Last Cavalier is a full and definitive biography of the dashing and enigmatic Confederate hero of the Civil War, General J.E.B. Stuart.

This life-sized portrait of Stuart surveys his life from childhood through his training at West Point, his years on the Western frontier, and his decision to stand with Virginia when war arrived. His brilliant Civil War career is covered in detail, from the raid on Chambersburg to his final, fatal clash at Yellow Tavern.

"The rudimentary field communications of the Civil War demanded of the cavalry the utmost in bravery, durability, and vigilance," writes Burke Davis in his introduction to this edition. "Victory or defeat of armies was often in the hands of their cavalrymen."

What the Critics Say

"The narrative is excellent....This sympathetic and carefully researched work belongs in every Civil War collection." (Library Journal)
"Barrett Whitener[s] voice generates the narrative and wraps deliciously around each of the players. General Lee speaks with courtly ease and Stuart with boyish energy as the laconic Jackson moves across Virginia." (AudioFile)

    "Entertaining"

    This is one of the more entertaining and interesting books I've listened to on Audible, and I have hundreds. It reads more like a novel than a history book and easily holds your attention throughout. I highly recommend this as a fun and interesting read about a huge Confederate Civil War figure.

    "Must Read for Civil War Buffs"

    Brings this unique character to life and presents the conflicting morals and values of the men that waged that war from a refreshing and non-judgemental viewpoint.

    "disappointing"

    I am almost through part one of this book and I come across 6 incidents where the audible repeats itself immediately. Very disappointing editing in this book so far. I will regret purchasing it.
