BEDFORD FORREST AND HIS CRITTER COMPANY BY ANDREW NELSON LYTLE FIRST EDITION FINE CONDITION NEAR FINE CONDITION DUST JACKET PROTECTED IN A CLEAR, BRODART COVER Original, Clean, Solidly Bound, Antique Book Frontispiece of General Forrest; Contains Illustrations and Maps Throughout Long Considered a Classic on General Forrest HANDSOMELY PUBLISHED BY MINTON, BALCH AND COMPANY, NEW YORK, IN 1931 In terms of his impact on modern warfare, no general of the Civil War had more than Lieutenant General Nathan Bedford Forrest. Not Grant, not Lee, not Longstreet or Sherman. General Forrest was a brilliant commander who never had enough men under his command to turn the war in the South's favor. Still, he was a hero to the people of the Tennessee River Valley where he won most of his victories, with good reason.
When the Union troops overran these areas and placed them under military rule, Forrest made sure they treated the citizens decently. Once he even saved a group of innocent men from a flaming death at the hands of vengeful Union soldiers whom he was defeating in battle. The author provides endless first-hand accounts of the exploits of Forrest to show the reader who Forrest was, a complex and highly successful man and Confederate leader. Forrest was an extraordinary individual who had more impact on the 20th century than any other Civil War general.Andrew Lytle was the dean of Southern writers, and in this work -- one of his earliest -- he not only brought to life America's greatest military figure, but an age and a people as well. It was Lytle's aim to make the times of Nathan Bedford Forrest come alive for the reader and he truly does this. He devoted himself to intensive research of the Tennessee where Forrest was born and the Mississippi where he lived.
In reading this book we not only learn about the marvelous -- indeed, often incredible -- feats of a military genius, but we learn at the same time about the people, the places, the morals, the values, and the way of life of a people long gone now.
