[Publisher's Note, by Gene Kizer, Jr. : I am honored to present Col. Jerry D. Morelock's review, below, as Part One of a two-part review of Ty Seidule's Robert E. Lee and Me. Next week will be Part Two, by me.
I was originally going to include Col. Morelock's review in one blog post, together with my own, but quickly decided his should stand on it's own.
Below, is Col. Morelock's bio followed by his excellent assessment of Robert E. Lee and Me.]
