Lee, a Life of Virtue is part of Thomas Nelson’s ‘The Generals’ series. This edition is a biography of General Robert E. Lee, tracing his family roots and showing how he became the leading General for the South during the Civil War, all while remaining true to his moral code.
Robert E. Lee was a career military man, but he was also a man of faith. He held to certain moral standards and was morally opposed to slavery. He wrote to his wife that slavery was wrong and should be abolished. He held family in high regard.
Perry does a fine job painting a picture of the life of Robert E. Lee. Perry includes many quotes and clips of writings from Lee that explains his views and faith.
Many forget that the Bible contains historical accounts of wars, battles, militaries, and the generals that lead them. A book like this serves to show us how men like Robert E. Lee kept their faith while serving their country despite the hardships they had to suffer. I recommend Lee, a Life of Virtue to anyone interested in the life of Robert E. Lee, military, the Civil War, or biographies in general. This is a well-written, interesting book on the life of Robert E. Lee.
