      The Enduring Relevance of Robert E. Lee: The Ideological Warfare Underpinning the American Civil War Marshall DeRosa DeRosa uses the figure of Robert E. Lee to consider the role of political leadership under extremely difficult circumstances, examining Lee as statesman rather than just a military leader and finds that many of Lee’s assertions are still relevant today. "In this volume the attempt has been made to imperfectly supply the great desire to have something from Robert E. Lee's pen, by introducing, at the periods referred to, such extracts from his private letters as would be of great interest. He is thus made, for the first time, to give his impressions and opinions on most of the great events with which he was so closely connected"--Preface.

FITZ is a book about a father. a son. and a gun. as said on the cover. However, the book is so much more full of life without a father It talks about how he never saw him once never knew his job or age later he found these things out.

oach Fitz is the debut novel of Sydney author Tom lee and its seriously good fun.
