On the podcast episode, Allen and I will be discussing his forthcoming book, Robert E. Lee: A Life (Knopf) which is releasing on September 28, 2021. The book is already receiving widespread praise.
"Deeply researched and elegantly written, this nuanced portrait captures Lee's ambiguous place in American history."
"Allen C. Guelzo has written exactly what the nation urgently needs right now--an example of mature thinking about complex, flawed people who took difficult actions in contexts, not of their making or choosing. In today's blizzard of facile, overheated, and grandstanding judgments about the past, this unsentimental biography illustrates the intellectual responsibility that the present owes to the past."
—George F. Will
|Dr. Allen Guelzo|
"Allen Guelzo confirms his place in the top rank of Civil War historians with his masterly biography of Robert E. Lee. Well-researched, well-written, and captivating, it will stand as the definitive single-volume life for decades to come. Guelzo's judicious comments on Lee's 'crime and glory' might be a good place for America to start healing her present-day wounds."
—Andrew Roberts, author of Churchill, Walking with Destiny
