“I can think of no better guide for young men embarking on the adventure of life than the maxims of Robert E. Lee.”
—H. W. Crocker III, author of Robert E. Lee on Leadership
“‘Must’ reading for all fathers and sons. . . . The example of Robert E. Lee illustrates in stark colors what it means to be a man—a model essential for all of us who are products of this distinctly unmanly age. Rick Williams has placed us all in his debt with this wonderful anthology of Lee’s wisdom and grace.”
—J. Steven Wilkins, author of Call of Duty: The Sterling Nobility of Robert E. Lee
Gen. Robert E. Lee, 1807-70, was renowned for his brilliant leadership during the Civil War; however, his genius extended far beyond the battlefield. All his life, he relied upon his faith for strength and guidance not only in troubled times, but also as the foundation upon which he based all of his dealings with others.
This volume contains his advice and observations, drawn from the great man’s own writings, on crucial topics such as education, duty, humility, and Christian faith—making this a valuable guide for today’s youth. Each section is preceded by a brief anecdote from his life, and each of the quotes is described with the time and circumstance.
