    Blount's biography of Robert E Lee is short general and weird It's ideal for a casual reader who doesn't know anything at all about Lee aside from his leadership role in the Army of Northern Virginia Having read quite a few histories of the eastern campaigns and gleaned the general details about Lee's life through those books' background information I found this mostly useful for information on Lee's father and early childhood The book is largely complimentary of a figure whose aura rivals even Washington's in the South even as Blount devotes an entire appendix to Lee's difficult relationship with slavery Lee's attitude was one of deep disdain rather than public condemnation I found the biography strange for its frequent sidebars however Blount goes off on tangents about spelling and Lee's encounters with men of letters and enjoys trying to make connections to Freudian psychology I suppose media personalities are allowed a few quirks when they attempt a serious piece of work It's enjoyable reading just a trifle odd
