Dave Wood's Book Report, Aug. 27, 2008
Attention Civil War aficionados!
"Dixie Betrayed," by David J. Eicher (Little, Brown, $27.95) turns the tables on the old saws about the gallant men of the Confederacy, their patrician values, their bravery. The whole Ashley Wilkes syndrome, if you get my meaning.
Eicher, a Milwaukeean says no. And he brings to bear meticulous research revealing that the North didn't best the South with superior strength and resources.
