The book provides a preliminary basis of Lee's youth and military career up to the Mexican American War.
 This is meant by glory in many passages of the Word, as that they should see the Son of man in a cloud with glory Matt. While he clearly admires Lee, Korda shows him to be an accidental general giving unclear and sometimes contradictory orders and not being able to handle face to face confrontation.
Thy sun shall no more go down, neither shall thy moon wane; for Jehovah shall be unto thee for a light of eternity Isa. An excellent introduction to an important American life. This was an excellent book! Interestingly, Korda barely skims the final two years of war. The last pages of the book are particularly strong. 21:23, 24 ; the holy Jerusalem denotes the New Church; the glory of God, the Divine truth from the Lord therein; in like manner her light in which they shall walk; the kings of the earth who shall bring their glory, denote those who are in truths from good Clouds of Glory,From all this it can now be seen what is signified by the glory of Jehovah which tarried upon Mount Sinai AC.
I would recommend for new students of the Civil War and those who may not have read about Lee previously. Even while the war was still raging many in the North looked on him with more than just respect, but something more like reverence. Whatever his personal beliefs, Lee's military leadership showed promise and attention to detail, making him a general equalled by few other men. This actually helped explain a lot of issues unanswered in other books.
Lee has always been a curious figure in American Civil War history. A pretty miserable experience for most of the soldiers apparently. He manages, among other things, to compare Generals McClellan and McDowell to Laurel and Hardy. Exodus 24:16 And the glory of the LORD abode upon mount Sinai, and the cloud covered it six days: and the seventh day he called unto Moses out of the midst of the cloud. Jack Garrett 's voice is immediately recognizable from his work in commercials and as a personality on radio stations in the West and Southwest.
For instance, he advises us twice that 19th century references to dinner are what we would now call lunch.  In Matthew:-- They shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and glory Matthew 24:30 ; that the literal sense of the Word is a "cloud," and the internal sense "glory," consequently Divine truth such as is in heaven, AC ; and that "glory" is the intelligence and wisdom which belong to Divine truth AC.
If not the gold standard for Lee biographies, this is a superbly engaging offering. Where Clouds of Glory it now, the glory and the dream? All the while, he was yearning for something else. I would recommend both books. -- "Boston Globe" This masterful and comprehensive single-volume biography is a worthy tribute to an icon whose Clouds of Glory still shines brightly.
And to the eyes of the sons of Israel the appearance of the glory of the LORD was like a consuming fire on the mountain top.
