about this book

With justice both to Forrest's unsavory peacetime ventures--his prewar rise to wealth as a Memphis slave trader, and his involvement after the war with the nascent Ku Klux Klan--to his undeniable accomplishments as a military strategist, Hurst offers the definitive biography of one of the Civil War's most brilliant generals.
