KIRKUS REVIEW

A biography of Tom (Stonewall) Jackson emphasizes his army career from his West Point training through his accidental death in the Civil War. His ""brilliant performance"" in the Mexican War, his allegiance to the South in the war between the states and the various strategies he planned and carried out such as the Shenandoah Valley Campaign in Virginia and the battle of Fredericksburg are offered in detail for the military campaign enthusiast. The facts of his personal life and boyhood, his interest in the Church and in education are treated more broadly. The Valiant Virginian is a competent if not dynamic study.
