Lee at the Alamo Summary


Lee at the Alamo - Harry Turtledove, author of perhaps the most famous alternate-history novel about Robert E. Lee (The Guns of the South, 1992), here returns with Lee at the Alamo, a look at what the great military leader might have done under only slightly different circumstances.

In the history we know, General Robert E. Lee felt compelled to fight on the Confederate side, because honor (as he saw it) forbade him to take up arms against Virginia, his native state. But what if the demands of honor had led him in the other direction altogether?

At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

    Harry Turtledove has a knack for capturing the attitudes of those long gone in many of his alternate history novels. He continues to feed my insatiable appetite for great novels with a touch of History and a dab of What If. Harry Turtledove has inspired me numerous times over again to search through history as I read his numerous Alternate History stories. He ignites the passion to learn about our timeline of history and his alternate one, and the connections and correlations between the two. For any reader interested in General Lee as a person, Turtledove explores his personality and reveals a great deal for the reasons he takes the path he does in our timeline. As always Enjoy!
