Military Memoirs of a Confederate: A Critical Narrative

Front Cover
Da Capo Press, Mar 1, 1993 - History - 634 pages
1 Review
Alexander wrote two books: a personal memoir intended for his children, which remained unnoticed until 1989, when it was published to enormous critical acclaim as Fighting for the Confederacy; and this book, Military Memoirs of a Confederate, which was first published in 1907 and immediately recognized as a classic.

It is undoubtedly the most accurate and most important firsthand general history of the Civil War.
