He was a fierce and controversial Civil War officer, an unschooled but brilliant cavalryman, an epic figure in Americas most celebrated war. A superb tactician and ferocious fighter, Nathan Bedford Forrest revolutionized the way armies fought in the course of rising from private to lieutenant general in the Confederate Army.In this detailed and fascinating account of the legend of the Wizard of the Saddle, we see a man whose strengths and flaws were both of towering proportions, a man possessed of physical valor perhaps unprecedented among his countrymen.
