Rebel Yell: The Violence, Passion and Redemption of Stonewall Jackson

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: S. C. Gwynne

Narrated By: Cotter Smith

Date: September 2014

Duration: 24 hours 58 minutes

Summary:

Finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, the epic New York Times bestselling account of how Civil War general Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson became a great and tragic national hero.

Stonewall Jackson has long been a figure of legend and romance. As much as any person in the Confederate pantheon—even Robert E. Lee—he embodies the romantic Southern notion of the virtuous lost cause. Jackson is also considered, without argument, one of our country’s greatest military figures. In April 1862, however, he was merely another Confederate general in an army fighting what seemed to be a losing cause. But by June he had engineered perhaps the greatest military campaign in American history and was one of the most famous men in the Western world. Jackson’s strategic innovations shattered the conventional wisdom of how war was waged; he was so far ahead of his time that his techniques would be studied generations into the future.

In his “magnificent Rebel Yell…S.C. Gwynne brings Jackson ferociously to life” (New York Newsday) in a swiftly vivid narrative that is rich with battle lore, biographical detail, and intense conflict among historical figures. Gwynne delves deep into Jackson’s private life and traces Jackson’s brilliant twenty-four-month career in the Civil War, the period that encompasses his rise from obscurity to fame and legend; his stunning effect on the course of the war itself; and his tragic death, which caused both North and South to grieve the loss of a remarkable American hero.

    03/16 This was my seven biography of Stonewall Jackson and it is by far, the best. At last, I think I understand the man thanks to S.C. Gwynne's thorough research and presentation. I have long said the the Civil War would have had a very different ending has Stonewall lived another two months. Now, I am totally convinced of it. And I have a much more complete understanding of the mythical awe in which he is held. Narration of this book as well above average. It's a long listen at 25+ hours but an excellent investment of time. Four stars for both. Am looking for other S.C. Gwynne titles.

  • Brian H.

    Great story. Amazing detail. One of the best history books I have ever read

  • James F.

    Author Gwynne tells a fascinating story. He certainly brings Stonewall to life; I feel I truly learned about the man, his talents, his idiosyncrasies. Narrator, Cotter Smith deserves accolades as well. I will probably will re-read (re-listen) to this book again.
