Includes chapters on Lee's relationships with General McClellan and General Garnett, Lee's Invasion of Northwest Virginia in 1861 tells the story of the celebrated military leader at the start of the Civil War. At the outbreak of the war, Lee was appointed to command the forces in Virginia. His first field assignment was commanding Confederate forces in western Virginia where he was defeated at Cheat Mountain. In 1862, when General Joseph E. Johnston was wounded at the Battle of Seven Pines, Lee assumed command of the Army of Northern Virginia. During the Seven Days Battles, Lee had his first opportunity to lead troops in the field. With a Confederate victory, Lee began his career as an admired leader of the South.

A unique telling of Civil War military activity in 1861, The Glories of War focuses on the Union's invasion of Virginia from four directions; it is the first study of the four invasion corridors of the Civil War. The Union invasions mainly produced small battles and skirmishes, as well as widely celebrated heroes, that received national attention in both the North and South but are forgotten today. Major themes include combatants' romanticized visions of the "glories of war," as well as their subsequent disillusionment. Special emphasis is placed on military activity in western Virginia (modern West Virginia), which has received limited study. Extensive use of Union and Confederate newspapers, along with previously unused sources, brings new information to readers. The text is supplemented by maps depicting both overviews and details of military action.
