Coming up this week on Point of the Spear the first part of a two-part interview with Dr. Allen Guelzo. On the podcast episode, Allen and I discuss 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."
